Most fishermen get a thrill when they throw their line in the water in the sheer hope that they’ll reel in a big fish. Others simply do it to escape from the stress of everyday city life. Brad Meck’s day started out calm, which is what he wanted. The water beneath him was serene, and he wanted to relish each moment of his alone time and, of course, focus on fishing. But then, he saw a large brown shape out of the corner of his eyes. It was floating in his direction. But Meck assumed that it was a branch, so he didn’t give it a second thought. Then, the unusual shape got closer, and it was about to mess with his perfect day. He finally saw what it was, and it certainly wasn’t a branch. He felt a sudden chill at the sight of it. He needed to escape, and fast.
