The National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame Spoon

I’m long overdue for some spoon posts and have a backlog of awesome pieces people have thoughtfully given to me in the past few months.

Let’s start start with the most recent: this delightful little fish-topped souvenir came in the mail this week from @caseyengels! It’s from the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum in Hayward, Wisconsin and the little green thing in the shield of the spoon is the actual museum: it’s called the “Shrine to Anglers” — a giant structure in the shape of a muskellunge (or “musky”). The museum is four stories tall, half a city block long, and its open jaws hold an observation deck.

After reading up about this place, I’m hooked! I think I’d reel-y like to have the oppor-tuna-ty to sea this museum in perch-son.

(I’ll be here all night! Don’t forget to tip your waitress!)
