Fish and Fire Extinguishers

What do fish and fire extinguishers have in common ?

well when I first asked the fishermen, their answer was: "When the fish catch fire, that's how we put them out".

Little did I know, that in Chicago, they have a concept called "power lining" or "power casting". They take a fire extinguisher, refill it with CO2, attach a pipe, then into the pipe goes a bob attached to a line of baited hooks. a press of the trigger and , whoosh, off goes the line a couple hundred feet into the lake. Today the Coho Salmon were hitting along with cut-throat trout.

here's some digi-snaps, I have B&W film which I still need to develop.

Too many cameras, too little time

The CO2 would also be good for freezing a soft bait, so it will hold together during the cast.
