Kentucky Afield TV to feature record angler, 15-year-old Sarah Terry

Sep. 10, 2009 @ 02:52 PM

 FRANKFORT, Ky. — It’s like Christmas in September for one young lady. We open the box containing an unbelievably big fish on “Kentucky Afield” television this weekend, September 12 and 13.

Folks that bump into Sarah Terry at the grocery store call her the “big fish girl” and for good reason. The 15-year-old Mount Sterling resident does hold the Kentucky state record for muskellunge. Her smiling face and her 47-pound keeper grace the cover of the current issue of the Kentucky Fishing & Boating Guide. This week on “Kentucky Afield” TV, the mount of the fish will now grace her wall at home. She’s been anxiously waiting for host Tim Farmer to help her open the box just delivered from the taxidermist.

Elsewhere, fishing guide David Jones knows crappie fishing at Green River Lake. Oddly, he and Farmer hook a muskie, too.
