For many years a group of Fishermen, from various parts of the country, including myself, met at a fishing lodge in Central Wisconsin.
Near the end of our conclave, we would have a large cookout. Everyone was invited. One of the specialties was alliagtor tail brought from the golf courses of Boca Raton, Florida, where one of the fishermen lived.
It was always a special treat.
