Here's Doug Barbin's story:

“I learned to fish at Glade Run Lake when I was three years old. It always had a special place for me, where I would go just to relax.

After the lake was drained, I was walking in the bed remembering all of the memories I had over the years there. When, low and behold, I saw something partly covered in mud sticking out of the lake bed. I pick it up and there in my hands was the first Rapala I ever owned--39 years after I lost it. I plan on putting hooks back on it and making my first cast back in the lake with it after the lake is refilled and then will retire it to a clear container for memory’s sake."
