Master Horseman and Fisherman

When I spoke with Al Dunning last week to work on the November installment of How’s My Riding?, he mentioned that he and his son-in-law Shadd Parkinson (also a successful horse trainer) had been fishing on an Iowa lake, where the family was vacationing. Turns out Al was downplaying just how successful their outing went!

This blog post from details that Al’s first fish of the day was a 17-inch Iowa Master Angler Award white bass. Shadd showed of his fishing skills by hooking a 20-inch small mouth bass.

Al’s headed back to his Arizona home, where he and Shadd will get back to work training horses. I wonder how many times they’ll recount their fishing tale. At least we all know it’s a legit story, thanks to their guide blogging about the horse trainers’ big catches!
