The Sewer Fisher

sewer-fishing

Kyle Naegeli, a 15-year-old high school student from the city of Katy, in Texas, loves fishing with a twist. Instead of going to a lake far away from the city, he prefers fishing right beside his home – in a sewer.

The storm drain where Kyle goes fishing is located merely 40 feet from his home. So far, he has managed to catch catfish and bluegills, species that you would hardly expect to find swimming around in a drain.

Kyle’s unique hobby started about four years ago, when he bet his dad that he could catch fish down in the sewer. “I caught a little bluegill and won the bet. It was like five bucks,” he said.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
