I was fishing the Mousam River in Maine one summer on an incoming tide. There was a large school of pogies getting smeared by 10 to 12 pound blues. I was wading wet sending in about 18 inches of water. A school of pogies came over the bar I was on and hit me in the back of the leg. It scared the heck out of me. I nearly jumped out of my skin. What got me walking, make that runnig on water was when I saw the blues right behind the pogies between me and the shore. My lily white calf is the same size as one of those pogies and I didn't want to be sushi for some over sized blue.
