Trout flown to President Roosevelt. Washington, D.C., May 21. Erdorn W. Wood, 57 year old sportsman went to Mystery Pond, New Hampshire, swished 29 trout from its 75-foot dept and started to Washington and President Roosevelt with the catch. His newly constructed glass-bottomed boat drifted on the pond during a rain storm, while Wood, depending solely on fly-casting, hooked the Presidential meal. The trout measured from 9 to 16 inches. Left to right: Spencer Treherne, the pilot; Marvin McIntyre, Secretary to the President who received the fish for the President; and Erdorn Wood, the fisherman, 5/21/1937
