A Fish Tale
(Click image to enlarge)
A "fish tale" is an boastful and inaccurate story alluding to the tendency of
some fishermen to exaggerate the size of their catch. Here it is just a play on words. Given that the wingspan of a mature
bald eagle is 5.9 to 7 feet (1.8 to 2.1 meters) the fish caught by this bird is
actually quite large. Even so, I later overheard him telling the other eagles that
the fish was at least 8 feet long.
