Notes From A Bygone Age

Here's a Blast From The Past, when Men Were Men (and the Sheep Were Frightened). The May 1966 issue of Popular Mechanics had a profile of a fellow named Ben Logan, who liked nothing more than to paddle out in his Folbot (a fold-up skin on frame kayak) and go shark hunting. Not only did he catch them, he lugged them back to shore, checked them over, then released them.
It's a short little article, but has some great stories about kayaking in south Florida in a totally bygone age. Check it out here.
