Now for the legend of chickenboy.
Being born half chicken and half
boy, chickenboy had quite a complex when he was young. The other children
constantly made fun of him and picked at his feathers. You can imagine all the
"why did chickenboy cross the road?" jokes.
His Dad, saw chickenboy
constantly sad and would always tell him, "you can't do anything to change your
past, but you can change your future". Chickenboy would ask, "But what do you
mean, what can I do, I'm a chickenboy?' His Dad replied, "Focus on one thing
son, and become the best there is at that one thing." Chickenboy asked, "But
Dad what is that one thing?" "That is for you to figure out chickenboy", his
Time passed and chickenboy spent a lot of time alone. He
took up fishing in the local bay system just to have something to do, to ease
the pain, and to kill time. Fishing for chickenboy was very theraputic. The
other bay birds, seagulls and pelicans even seemed to like chickenboy and
it appeared they even pointed out where the fish were for chickenboy to catch.
Could it be birds of a feather, really do flock together?
Well as luck
would have it, chickenboy got quite good at catching fish, constanly feeding his
family and neighbors with fresh fish. Little did chickenboy know he was on the
verge of discovering "The one thing his Dad had talked about".
Chickenboy really enjoyed his chemistry class in Junior High School and
started experimenting with melting colored plastics over the bunson burner in a
small pan and molding them into different shapes. One day it came to him, the
shape he just created during class looked like a fishing lure. That afternoon
he stuck a jig head onto the six inch strip of plastic he had created and hit
the bay. What happened next, as the sun was setting in the background,
literally brought tears to the eyes of chickenboy. Because for the first time
in his life, he felt proud of himself, he knew, that he knew, he had just
found "his one thing
". Chickenboy had caught in less than 27
minutes, 3 keeper reds and 7 keeper trout and 2 keeper flounder on his newly
created lure. www.chickenboylures.com
was thus created. Fish with a chickenboy and create your own fishing destiny.
