Garter Snake Fishing

Meet the fisher.

headupLook how beautiful she is. (About 3 feet long.)


Inspect her fishing tackle.


And her hidey hole. She looks like a beaver peeled stick lying in the shallows.


Note the two 3-inch fish in the foreground. They are edging quickly closer.

Note the expanded technique. She (he?) held this position for 30 seconds. No luck. Note the fish edging in from the left.
