A Texas oil tycoon is in northern Canada for a vacation and has booked a day of fishing on the Great Slave Lake. The guide says they will start out on the lake at sun up, two am. As they start out the guide says, “Have you ever seen such a long day?”
The Texan lights a cigar and says, “Sonny, the sun never sets on Texas, it’s God’s country”
As they head out across The Great Slave, the tenth largest in the world, the guide asks, “Have you ever fished on a lake a big as this?”
The Texan puffs on his cigar and says, “Sonny, back in Texas this would just be a pond.”
Finally they arrive at the fishing ground. They set their gear and the Texan reels in a few nice ones then he hooks a big one. The fight goes on for hours. Finally he reels it close enough to the boat to see that it is a monster, the biggest he has ever seen. In his mind he already sees it mounted over his fireplace, a trophy to brag to his friends about.
The guide muscles the boat into the boat and turns to the Texan with a smile, “Have you ever seen a trout this big?”
Unable to resist, the Texan shrugs and says, “Why, Sonny, back in Texas we throw little ones like that back.”
The guide smiles and drops the fish back into the lake. “We do the same thing here in Canada.”
