Fishing by the Book?

All those years I used to tell mum I was at the library when I was really fishing, and I never thought of this one!

The Cohoes Public Library in New York State, USA, now has 5 fishing rods that are ready to lend out! All you need is your library card and they loan them out like any other library resource.

Hemingway would have been 112
The details:
•They have 5 fishing rods rigged with a bobber and hook.

•You may borrow them for 7 days, after which they must be returned (in good condition, please) or renewed.

•You are responsible for following all necessary and appropriate rules and regulations.

• You need a fishing licence

Maybe you should pick up a good fishing book while you are there? How about something by Earnest Hemingway whose birthday was recently celebrated by the library. The "Old Man and the Sea" author and legendry fisherman, would have been 112 on 21 July.
