I had an uncle was fishing in a pond. Dividing the pond was a old wire fence, As my uncle moved his boat to the fence to paddle over it he saw a bunch of water moccasins in a cluster atop the fence, it scared him so badly he fell out the boat, the boat hit the fence and my uncle stop fishing for trouble that day.
