A Wizard Fish

We generally have a few old characters coming in to the shop, and we are always entertained by their regular fishy stories. One fellow in particular is renowned for his mispronunciation of words, for instance... he has a Dwaia rod with a Shimani reel, and the rod has a dodgy furrel.
 Well he's told us today that he hooked a Sturgeon (Sterlet ?) at a commercial fishery at the weekend and when he gave it some pressure it leapt from the water like a "Merlin".....I wonder if the lake was anywhere near Camelot !!!
