CONTINUED FROM FRIDAY Mato hurled his lure deep into the papyrus on his first cast. “I’m stuck, Mr. Krenden,” Mato announced and started yanking on his line, bending the slender papyrus reeds with their bushy green heads. “Just be patient and wait a few minutes, Mato,” my dad answered calmly. “I’ll help you get it out.” Mato didn’t like having to wait. But just then the drag on Dad’s reel began to click. “Got one!” he said. He proceeded to play the fish in close to the boat. Mato dropped his rod on the floor of the boat and scrambled to get the landing net. He leaned over the side and slipped the net into the water and the fish entered headfirst.

SOLUTION He lifted it into the boat. “It’s a big one, Mr. Krenden,” Mato beamed. “It’ll go almost four pounds,” Dad said, smiling, as he reached into the net and gripped the bass firmly with a thumb in its mouth that made it stop flapping around. He pulled out the hook and Mato tied up the keeper net and dropped the fish in. “That’s a big fish!” Kamau said. “Sure is! Well, there’s fish in the lake boys,” my dad said. “Let’s catch some more.” Mato turned around. “Hey, where’s my fishing pole?” SIMPLE SUDOKU – 4 BY 4 NUMBERS CONTINUES TOMORROW DOWN 1.
