Here’s a new and very unexpected twist on the old proverb “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Mechanic Ryan Hein says “most mechanics understand that you don’t use a number 11 (wrench) for anything,” so he decided to put his unwanted / unused tool to good use. So what did he do? Hein made it into a fishing lure, of course, and then he caught a 400 lb. grouper with it. Now the adage goes: “give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day; give him a number 11 box wrench and he’ll eat for a lifetime” or, something like that…
