Middleton's tackle and books
Mrs. Middleton regarded Harry's passion for fishing with little regard. When the old bird expired she had a hellva yard sale where she sold his stuff lock-stock-and-barrel. By the time I got a call about it from Craig Haney who ran the Orvis shop in Mountainbrook, his rods and flies were gone as were most of his books. Digging through the scrapes I got a dozen or so books from his personal collection. I tried to buy the old witch's broom, but she needed it to ride to the beach that weekend.
