1997-03-01 - Photo Staff. WHO GETS THE CREDIT for teaching Ronnie Grant to be such a great fisherman? His dad, Leland Grant, top photo, says he did. But Mrs. Grant says that it was the late Henry Giles, shown below with Ronnie when he was 12 or 13 , who taught Ronnie Grant to fish. The younger Mr. Grant gives a lot of credit to Mr. Giles, but a comparison of the fish in these three strings would indicate, that at least genetically the famous fishing expert Leland Grant may have had as much to do with Adair County's famous fishing champ's success as the squire of Spout Springs did. Grant's store across from Tabernacle Christian Church on Hwy 206 is headquarters for serious Green River Lake fishermen. This item first appeared in Issue 12 of the print edition of Columbia! Magazine.
