Well, what would you do? Sherman Sheppard of Ronce- verte would not give up the sport of fishing he loved so much and found a way to make it easier to deal with Sherman lost his left arm in a coal mining accident years ago but has continued to enjoy life to its fullest. Sherman was in the store one day when Richard Aide told him about seeing an advertisement in an outdoor magazine that showed a device to retrive your line by battery power. After checking into the facts, Sherman located the company which produces the Royal Bee. The electric reel aid was developed by Royal Barton some 14 years ago. It was during this period of time that his father had a stroke and lost the use of an arm. The device consists of a small motor attached to the reel with a series ofgears to drive the spool. The one Sherman uses has a variable speed control to allow him to work lures at different speeds. The cost of a set up like this is around $166. In the picture, Sherman is shown with his new set up, complete with a belt pouch for power. Sherman's perseverance to continue his sport despite his physical problem is an example of the love he has for the outdoors that many people take for granted. Best of luck to Sherman and good fishing. On The-Local Front: You might call this the Carl Wykle show. Carl is from Frankford and is one heck of a fisherman. On May 23, Carl caught a 30 inch, 11 pound pike. Carl's wife is shown holding the trophy fish. Just a little while after that, he came to the sporting goods department at Aide's with three more fish. Two of the fish were pike; one was 23 inches and the other was 22~A inches. Also in the cooler was a 19'A inch smallmouth. All of the fish had been caught on Carl's secret lure, a type of artificial frog. It may be the lure, but I suspect it is more a tribute to Carl's fishing ability.
