THIS WASN'T MY FAULT!
While fishing on the Kern River in California Burton Paul caught a gorgeous 23-inch rainbow. To capture the moment of triumph, he turned to his girlfriend, a non-flyfisher, to take the picture.

The result was a mudfish obscured largely by his body. Burton Paul's view of the incident cannot be printed here but it consisted of words commonly heard in the military.
