This is a picture (circa 1954) of me and my brother, Larry Hupka, right, fishing at what we called Medicine Lake but is now Harry Strunk Lake. We spent many days fishing lakes, farm ponds and rivers around Nebraska with our father, Glen Hupka, who was an avid fisherman, and I am happy to say Larry and I are fishing partners to this day. Our dad passed away several years ago, and we think of him every time we wet a fishing line. – Marlin Hupka, Lincoln, Nebraska ▲ My father, Olof Klanderud, and Henry Leader caught four spoonbill, one carp and a sturgeon weighing 42 pounds. All were caught in an afternoon below the dam at Gavins Point, November 1959. I was in the Navy at that time but have had many great fishing and hunt trips in Cedar County. – Larry Klanderud, Bellevue, Nebraska ▲ My dad, Dean Simonson, right, and my uncle, Duane, in Worms, Nebraska, in the early- to mid-1960s. The pheasant populations were so high that for a few years, of your four-bird bag limit, one could be a hen. My dad has been deceased since 1967, and my uncle lives in Buffalo, Wyoming, while I live five miles from Worms. – Ron Simonson, Palmer, Nebraska ▲
