Ever wonder what it was like to fish for Bass in 1903? This burning question is answered in the thrilling video “Bass Fishing”. In case you’re curious, here is the riveting description of this video:
A man in fashionable sporting attire is standing on some large rocks at the edge of a stream. He is holding a short fishing rod in his hands and casting into the running stream. The film ends as the fisherman kneels at the edge of the water, holding the reel in his left hand while he hauls in the fish with a net held in his right hand. There are several occasions when the fisherman cannot be seen, as he walks out of camera range.
I recommend you drop what you’re doing and sit back for an inspiring 1:16 thrill ride in black and white.
Used to be, before life got complicated, I would head to the Boundary Waters in the summer and do a little Canoeing and a little fishing. Black bears, though unusual, are present in those parts, and you're really in the Wilderness once you paddle in a few days. So, a couple friends and I have a long standing discussion about whether, in a life and death situation, you could fight a black bear without a gun and win (you could throw rocks, use a paddle, etc). I guess this settles the argument.
