Are we going to do a picture from the 1960s, that may narrow the field? John

Hey, John, I think we would all dig a far out, groovy 1960s photo.

As long as we are going back John let's really narrow the field. Bill Sonnett fishing 1946

I love to get old reels, work on them until they run as smooth as silk and the take them fishing using pre-1960 plugs, mostly surface fishing for Largemouths after dark.

That is amazing, Bill! It's the best photo yet!
Love those Open Face Spinning Reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco)

Doesn't look like Bill is fishing, he is playing with fishing tackle, tuning the rod.

I tried to photo shop a pic of a Musky into this picture, but no luck. I am still looking for a fishing pic to top the curly haired Bill Sonnett, but that is going to be tough! This is a pic from 1965. John

Jay, that pic of the reel may have been taken at the Rochester show in 2000, so maybe you got the reel then(?) I hope you took the line off. If it means anything, I still have the shirt shown in the show photo, but luckily it's not as tight-fitting anymore.

Late 50s at the Jersey shore. Catch and what?
Plus a bit of tackle overkill.

I played hooky from my 10-year HS reunion to go fishing in Canada:
