Herb Dietrich recalls the time he spent fishing and ice fishing on Lake Simcoe, often with the local 'ice man', Bill Lamb. Herb explains that Bill's ice hut would be about a mile out from the foot of the 7th Line, and would feed his line down about 80 feet. He used boiled barley and minnows as bait, and Herb recalls the use of a snagger until it was outlawed. The snagger was a home-made apparatus made of piano wire that was had straight hooks soldered on either end, and another near the weight in the middle. Minnows were placed on the hooks and whenever a whitefish neared the minnow, the fisherman would know and tug the snagger up so that the device would bend upwards and trap the fish inside. Herb explains that it was somewhat unpleasant but that people thought differently about the treatment of animals at the time. Herb also elaborates on Bill's hut, explaining that it had a handmade stove in it that ran off of used motor oil. Herb was always welcome to fish with Bill, and sometimes Herb rode his horse, Laddie, down to the take and then turned him loose but Laddie would find his own way home.
