I have a book of poetry I inherited from my grandfather. Published in 1941. Called "Floridays".

 

One poem is called "Fishin' in de Ditch". 

 

It's in dialect. Tells how the white folk, what gots all dat money, takes dere motor boats an' they rods an' reels, an' goes out in de lake. But us colored folk does just fine wit' our cane poles, fishin' in de ditch. Catch us a few bream. Maybe a bass now and then.

 

 

You never really know what's in any body of water, until you drop a line in it.

Do you need a fishing license? Or will your drivers license work because you are in a road?

wonder what kind of bait he's using?

Perhaps a size  #20 midge, tied with yellow yarn,  and red ribbing, with a red tail, tied on a ox tippet?
