The beast that started it all. I grew up with this stuffed Rainbow in my bedroom throughout my childhood. It was long forgotten until last week when I visited my parents. I glanced up at the Bow and it just hit me, this was my first fish I caught back at the weee, little age of five. This pig was caught near Silver Town, Montana in a small "kid's only" pond. Imagine this: a mikey mouse pole with push button release, a can of worms, and slough of bobbers, and watching the pole fly out of my hands while my Dad running into the water to save the catch. It weighed 7lbs, not too bad for a first fish, eh?
