In the summer it's more fishing, combined with pleasure boating, houseboating, water skiing, sailing, canoeing, swimming, sun bathing and every other conceivable summer-related sport including softball, golf, camping, picnicing, tennis, and hiking.
But what about fall ... how about duck hunting, pheasant hunting, football, hiking, hickory nutting, deer hunting, to say nothing of more fishing.
