Gang Signs

In the United States there is an urban legend that when a gang member kills someone the deceased persons' shoes are tossed over the power lines. There are other possibilities pertaining to the shoes(graduations, finishing basic training, advertising for drug dealers, etc.) but the one that sticks in my head is the first one.

In light of all that information, what do you make of this?

What is that draped over the power lines? Bobbers. For fishing. Granted, these did extend over the creek but who did it? Boastful fishermen? Fish who don't want others crowding their turf? Minnows who graduated to fishdom?

It's a puzzler.

Its really quite simple. I know of more than one young man who in his enthusiasm over his new rod and reel had to practice a few casts...yes this has happened in your neighborhood-- just not over the power lines.

I like the idea that it's the fish trying to keep others off their "turf"!

Fr. Bob - That could explain some weird lure sightings!
MorningAJ - Me too!
