Wherever you get triples Blue Stamps. Her fresh butter Apple butter and other trimmings. I bragged to Annie of our catch. One agony still ungers in my mind. As a Barefoot City Novice i found the first week or so constant torture. Only after i had shyly asked a few questions of Annie Heyl and admitted my ignorance did she say with Candor Quot you re a City Dummy. You should drag your feet especially in the stubble i soon Learned the trick and found it quite easy. As the weeks passed while i was carrying water to the Leld workers my feet soon of ame hardened. A to a As the weeks passed the subject of eels was renewed when Uncle will announced that he had heard they were going to Drain the old singmaster dam which was part of the Brook in which Uncle will and i had made our catch. He said it was necessary to Drain the accumulated mud and Silt that had gathered. Quot i think it might be worthwhile to keep a watch on the dam As soon As the water goes off for a lot of fish which will Likely run out the raceway at the Sawmill Gate Quot he must be a lot of eels in there. Each Spring at the Sawmill in be watched the Black Streak of Little ones hardly two inches Long come upstream and get through the Gate at the Mill. I understand they come from the Uncle will s tale of draining the singmaster dam created a lot of wild speculation. I had to prepare for this adventure. A Long Sweet Birch Rod was selected along the Brook below Uncle will a. It was trimmed and i secured some Stout brass wire and fastened it to the tip some four feet from that extremity. Then too we had to have a tub As receptacle. Aunt Fanny had a Middle sized one she said Annie and i could take and hide in the Brush a few Days before the draining. Together Annie and i went to the clump of Alders where we hid the tub and covered it with leaves. There was a lot of tittering talk by Annie for the excursion had accumulated a lot of mystery. She had never caught eels that Way. We got together several heavy planks that were stacked near the icehouse. These i nailed together with end battens ready for throwing them out Over the mud so that we were near at hand and off the embankment where the trickling Brook would naturally attract the eels to escape downstream. A of a we were on watch each Day until finally we saw the water rising from the Side Gate. Soon the water level had drained to the mud where Only the Central Brook trickle was finally running. By mid afternoon i could see that the time for action had come and with Annie a help we threw out the first Plank and then the other one to reach far a ther out to the trickling Brook. The tub was sunk in the mud a near the breast of the dam. I instructed Annie to see to it that the eels were to go alive or clubbed into the tub. I was a at the head of the last two Bat a tend planks. She stood at the end of the other Plank where the tub was partially sunk into the mud. After a few eels had emerged from the mud they readily slip Ped into the trickling channels that went to the nearby Gate. In a twinkling i had snared eight or to of them. In a circular sweep of the 15-foot Rod the eels were thrown into the tub. Annie could quickly release the noose after she had dispatched the eel. The Light was beginning to fade our tub was about half full with the yellow and slate coloured catch when i saw the prize of the big ones coming from the Entrance neck of the Pond. Quot Here comes the King c them All. Annie get ready Quot i called. In a twinkling i had adjusted the noose. He slipped into this. I pulled. My Rod trembled and curved with its weight. I Slid it to Annie. Annie cried Quot in a going to grab him. You a better help with this she pulled the huge head upward and hit it on the head. The Black thing must have been Over three inches in diameter and More than four feet Long. She Drew it up. The eel swung about her Waist. At that moment she moved Forward got on a Slippery Plank and went splashing into the mud up to her Waist holding onto the Plank with one Arm while she held onto the eel with the other. Quot can you hold it Quot Quot never mind in be got it All with this i went to her Rescue. Quot ill give it another blow Quot she said Quot get this wire Annie and ill throw it into the once in the tub it quieted Down when i released the noose. Annie said a take the tub out first. We done to want to lose i grasped her hand and she managed to crawl to the Broad Plank. After a superficial Bath we went to the House. We divided the catch and Annie marched proudly Home. A
