On the nicotine stained wall just behind the bartender are the remains of a valiant competitor. It's been said that the bigger than life fish was defeated by Hemingway himself. A story that's never been proven, but has been told for generations. With eyes on their smartphones patrons rarely notice the colossal fish and one cannot help but wonder if this remnant of yesteryear would still be swimming if had been released.
Out of a passion for fishing our guest Mike Emerson started the Catch and Release Print Shop. A company dedicated to preserving the lives of our noble competitors while capturing the memories of our contest.
