Story Summary

Rooster is wondering how to untangle his lucky bobber when the thieving, pig-murdering Old Man Bockenweiler comes strolling down the path. Rooster hides and to his surprise, his dreaded enemy stops, untangles the bobber, neatly rolls the line and leaves Rooster's fishing pole by his can of worms showing Rooster a different and surprisingly kind side of the Old Man.
