SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — A fisherman isn't telling fish tales when he says he fished a 45-year-old wallet out of a West Texas lake.

A metal Social Security card and a military dependent tag identified the owner as Kenneth Budden. The wallet belonged to him when he was a teenager in the 1970s.

Riley announced his discovery on Facebook and was contacted hours later...
