A quick diversion from the middle of a pile of Lancaster posts (I’ve left Abe’s and am currently en route to Poland, but managed to file a few away while on the farm)…

Eric shares an interesting photo of a Wisconsin Amish teenage fisherman.

The two boys Eric spoke with were out all day on a local lake.  This shot was taken while they made a pit-stop for snacks.  Since they’d be returning home late, the fish would have to wait til breakfast, they said.

Fishing is a sport with a nice practical justification–feeding the family.  Amish across America enjoy hunting as well, which often results in freezers full of venison for the colder months.

But how do the Amish approach the more competitive, ‘non-productive’ sports–basketball, football and so on?  More on that in the next post.
