The more you look at this, the funnier it gets:
The guy in the middle just slays me–he looks like he’s never seen a fishing pole before. As for the rest of them, well, I don’t even know where to start.
Many thanks to Bill Visinsky ’79 for sending this in!
That is a great picture
Who knew you did shirts and skins for fishing?
a) that is some epic barbed wire behind them. Was this shot in the yard of a low-security prison?
b) what is up with the black borders drawn around people?
The barbed wire is next to Harris Gully–I don’t know who they were trying to keep out. The photo was taken by a newspaper so maybe they had some reason for doing the lines.
My thought as well. It looks like it was filmed on the set of The Great Escape.
c) those are bait-casting reels, not fly
I know! That’s a big part of what made me laugh. Using these things is not rocket science
Helen loves to tell how Hallybeth Poindexter taught the women’s PE class to use casting rods. The women would line up along the indoor swimming in the old field house and use hookless weights to target male swim team members swimming laps. The women found it amusing; not sure about the male swimmers.
Great story, Sandy, Thanks for sharing.
BTW, ask Helen if the girls’ classes wore those CUTE Rice female swimming suits. You may remind her that I have a picture of her in one of those outfits, so she should be gentle with her reply.
Well, actually, Melissa, there is quite a bit of skill and art required to avoid a backlash and successfully operate a bait-casting reel. Especially prior to modern technological advances.
