Caught in the act. This naughty children drawing shows a young boy fly fishing in the parlor or sitting room. We see that he’s hooked a vase right off of the mantle. We don’t know if the vase breaks or not but we can only suppose this naughty boy will have some explaining to do. This picture is quite different from our other fishing images but it is perhaps one of the most charming.
This is another wonderful drawing from the children’s magazine Harper’s Young People. It was included in the February 3, 1880 edition.
