William Akers brings the story of an unusual catch of his nephew, Allen E. Akers, of Geneva, New York. Trolling for trout in Cayuga Lake, his line caught on something 300 feet below on the bottom of the lake. Something broke loose and he pulled a ten pound catch to the surface, a corroded pebble containing thousands of tiny shelled creatures called brachipods. These tiny creatures were plentiful in an inland sea there, about 350 million years ago, and formed a fossil layer about 100 feet thick when the sea receded. A more recent age brought the glaciers, scooping out the lake basin and carrying the fossil rock into the lake bed. Part of the rock was in the mud and it remained unchanged. The upper part was corroded and partly dissolved by the water, making it ragged.
