BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: An amazing story from County Kerry in Ireland where they have found the remains of lobster pots that belonged to a Massachusetts lobsterman and were lost during the so-called " Perfect Storm " back in October of 1991 . And they are -- we know they're his because Rosemary Hill of Waterville, County Kerry , found a tag with his name on it. The storm became the stuff of legend in New England thanks to a book by Sebastian Junger and a subsequent movie with George Clooney . Scientists say a 20-year drift across a big 3,000 mile ocean is uncommon but not impossible. Meantime, the lobsterman, who was out a few hundred pots, had given up all hope they'd ever be seen again.
