Erdorn Wood 1937 Washington DC
Erdorn Wood, the 57 yr old fisherman, presenting a representative of President Roosevelt with a box of freshly caught fish (trout).
Here's the story: Mr Wood went to Mystery Pond, New Hampshire, swished 29 trout from their 75-foot depth and started to Washington and President Roosevelt with the catch. His newly constructed glass-bottomed boat drifted on the pond during a rain storm, while Wood, depending solely on fly-casting, hooked the Presidential meal. The trout measured from 9 to 16 inches.
Now that's a fish story!
