"A Fish Story", by J. B. Wallis
The first page of a typed story, written by John B. Wallis, describing the fishes he and an pseudonymous friend discovered in Clearwater Bay, Lake of the Woods, in June 1946. A large trout was found with a ten-inch catfish lodged in its throat; Wallis surmises that, as the trout tried to swallow the catfish, the catfish's spines were driven into the sides of the trout's throat, causing the catfish to be stuck. The typed story is three pages long; photographs and negatives of the fishes accompany it., Luna Collection ID - 109::UMANITOBALCM::NA, Luna Object ID - 436319, Luna Image ID - 153551
