Whimsical illustrated account of a fishing trip in the North Woods of Ontario. Bill McGiffin (proprietor of the Fort Madison, Iowa, Evening Democrat) and colleagues from the newspaper travelled to Crow Lake Lodge, north of Nestor Falls. Each member of the party, comes under the satirical eye of cartoonist Dobby Blank, whose pen captures fishing mishaps, outdoor fun, and some carousing. The final page is a cartoon of a fish snapping the leader, marked with the journalist’s concluding “30”.
McGiffin (1893-1955) bought the Evening Democrat in 1919 and later built up substantial newspaper holdings. This work is unrecorded.
