Pages of History: The best fish liar awarded

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, June of 1950.

Madge Sperling, wife of Klamath’s justice of the peace, has been found to be the biggest liar in Del Norte County, according to results of judging at the annual fish liar’s banquet held at Patrick Creek lodge last Saturday night.

Mrs. Sperling, telling her story before nearly 60 opening day fishing enthusiasts, told of a trout, of course it was a monster trout, which she lost last year after hooking him on a Royal Coachman fly and battling him fiercely, losing him and the fly. This year, she said, she went back to the same pool and there she found the same outsize trout, still with the Royal Coachman in its mouth and after it swam a whole bunch of little trout, each with a Royal Coachman hanging from its mouth. (She told it much better than this, but you get the idea).
