Aug. 27. iff*)— Let's go fishie. one day anyway. IH the eye' of fisherman, Ben Hardesty, 23/ear old redhead who just won ty national professional all-around ^ampionship in fly and bait casting has one of the sweetest Jobs p the world. ''. He wojjs for a company which makes filing tackle, and this requires /iim to fish—he gels in a'pout /JO days a year—and demon- stiate? .tackle. While fishing he tries tut new tackle before it's put on the market. rur-her, if he busts some lackle of Jose s a plug, the company ships hih more of the same, a couple nfjdozen at a time. His ambition? T< keep right on doing what he's ddng. (All (he other sweet jobs, of mirse. are held by other profes- scpals working for other tackle companies, doing .what Hardesty's ioing.i But Hardesty is an extraordinary . f sherman In another way: He's roncst. He admits sometimes he , fishes a!l day and comes home jskunked. Just learning that this i can happen to someone else was a sreat relief to me. I've come home fishless so often I I bought someone was putting garlic on my hook, Hardesly Is Relaxed K He's a very relaxed and confident -young man. He has fished In practically every state. And a move was made of his catching a tarpon on Young Intruder Shoots Banker 62-Year-old Man Slain by Teenager JACKSONVILLE, Pla.. AUR. 27 (£*)—Jacksonville banker John E Stephenson. 62. was shot to death by a teen age intruder In hii river road home last night. The boy, about 14 to 16 years old, ran out a *Ide door and escaped after shooting Stephenson in front of his wife and daughter. Police Capt. L. S. Eddins- told this story: Stephenson, vice president of thi Atlantic National Bank, his wife and daughter. Mary. 28. were pre paring a meal when they heard i noise In the front of the house The daughter surprised a strangi boy coming down the steps from th second floor ajid called her -father The youth said he was seekim .an apartment for his mother am Pfhought h« wa* in an apartmen house. He suddenly said: "I have not stolen anything. I'v only got a gun." He backed into Ihe dining room gun in hand, wnen Stephenso followed him the youth fired bullet into the banker's head. Stephenson was a veteran of th British army In World War I. has a wife and small daughter. One an 18-pound test line. Hardesty's home Is in Detroit. He of the drawbacks of his job is that he has to be away (rom them a lot. He's on the road most of the 12 months. This means, besides Ihe fishing, giving exhibitions at sport shows, on TV, before Boy Scout jamborees, at businessmen's meetings, before clubs, in schools and colleges. Interest In casting has grown so much. Hardesty says, that it's be- me a credit course in physical lucation at the Universities In linols, Montana and Florida 'hy?i Because a man can fish ng after he's too old for baseball nd football. Hardesty has been competing ational casting tournaments since e »-as 15. This Is the fourth row that he's von a profes- onal title. Difference Explained The difference between a prores- onal and an amateur In a nationa asting tournament Is this: the mo- ent a caster goes to work for ckle company he's a professional Anyway, Hardesty was so goo< hat the Shakespeare Tackle Corn- any hired him. And that bring^ one of the funniest - situation! the fishing. Except in news apers It's a sin to mention fishing ackie by name. The fishing editors of the outdoo lagazines never commit the sin 'hey lie themselves in knots tryini i describe a rod.- reel, line or lun ithout ever mentioning Its name fust be fear of offending adver isers. Editors Could Learn These outdoor magazine flshln dltors could learn a helpful les on from some of the fishing edit rs of newspapers who explain wh sught what, where, when, unde what conditions, and using wha y name. Since fish have different taste n different waters, it's a help t fisherman to know what plu he black bass nab where he's go Ing. One of, the best In the countr n this field Is an old friend, Va Plannagan. fishing editor of th Vew Orleans States. He gives wide information ishing in his whole area, beside using two columns a week describing fishing spots and how to get there, with a map.
