MUCK AND BULLETS

When I was younger, I enjoyed two favourite past times, reading and fishing. I spent many happy hours with my line in the water and reading the contents of a good book at the same time.
One day while I was idling away at the seaside, an elderly gentleman approached me and asked if I often read books and fished in unison. When said that I did, he advised that for every fish I caught that day, he would supply me with an equal number of books.I thanked him kindly and then proceeded to have a most successful day in which I read a lot and lured many fish onto my line. As night time fell, I was up to my neck in books and mullet.
(Only the names have been changed, to protect those who neither read nor fish)
