Fake Fisherman

IMG_4553This angler looks like he is enjoying a peaceful day on Maranacook Lake, hoping to feel a welcome tug on his line.  But look closely — it’s a well-dressed mannequin, not a real fisherman.

Why would a whimsical person put a fake fisherman out on the water?  Well, why do farmers put a scarecrow out in the field?  Obviously, a fake fisherman is intended to scare away fish!
