dumb Boobies…

most of us know that Boobies look like this:

they float, we fish them deep with a fast sinker, they wiggle and bob and they’re very inciting.

well, apparently the guy below didn’t quite read the instructions and managed to stretch his fly line across a bicycle path and capture a soft-headed pedalist in the process of trying to land his fish…

Booby Trapping: they weren’t kidding when they said that fate decides when Coloradans who are supposed to meet will meet when the time is ‘just right’…
