HANCOCK COUNTY — John Bosze and Perry Davis (left) are not your typical fisherman. But they know how to bring in a catch. The two men transport fish from a hatchery for weeks at a time from state to state for customers who have water gardens or ponds on their property. On Wednesday, during a week in which they already had covered 1,000 miles in Indiana, the Arkansas salesmen brought their specially outfitted truck to Greenfield. From bluegill to catfish to koi for the backyard pond, the men, who work for Arkansas Pondstockers, doled out specimens by the pound.
