Fishing At Back River Near The Sewage Treatment Plant

This is what growing up in Essex and Dundalk in the 70s was like. Carp in the summer, in the winter when Back River would freeze hillbillies would ride their pickups out on the ice and crash through to the mud 3 inches below. Note the PBR box on the beach, the dead fish and the cast on the kid’s leg, not to mention his awesome bandana.
