Good story Leo,
I did similar things when I was young. I lived down the road from the
township dump, which my Grampa ran after retiring from his job. I would get
sheets of plastic and make ponds out of that. It had lots of holes, which
ended up being Islands. I would fill the pond, and when I seen a wet spot
under the clear plastic, reach under and force soil up to make an Island.
Then I went the canal and got sand to line the bottom , along with weeds. I
also collect shore weeds at the pond in the dump. I would get driftwood from
the resivoir . I then would gets stones from the railroad track bed, since
there are very few large rocks around here.. I stocked only native fish that
would show up in the ditches when the floods came. I didn't make any money,
but had a lot of fun raising fish and other things.
