Pike & pickerel fishing season is here! Have you made any historic catches yet? This proud angler is Henry H. Leis, "holding a 5 1/2 lb. pickerel fish he caught trolling on Lower Saranac Lake, August 1915." Henry would have been about eight years old in this photograph. He was the son of George and Marie Leis, and became an amateur taxidermist later in life.
