A rare early "live action" shot of dip-net fishing at The Dalles. While the fish is blurry, due to the long exposure time of older cameras, this view gets you up up close to the efforts of the man wielding the dip-net, as his catch glistens in the sun. Note the cords tied below both knees on his thick pants - perhaps denims? -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
