Opening Day Fishing Season (Unpublished)

Opening Day Fishing Season (Unpublished) | Drawing | Wisconsin Historical Society
Imaginative pen-and-ink drawing that collages several scenes: the  Madison skyline from the lakeshore of Lake Monona; Ted Ryan, a road maintenance worker, kneeling on ice to peer down a fishing hole, while a fishing line stretches from one hole to another; a large sunfish on a line above him leaps, lured, out of another hole; a man riding a walleye as an iceboat; Ted driving a steamroller marked "Ryan Express"; a frog bundled up in an icefishing tent; a man on ice skates holding a sail while pulling a sled full of fishing gear; and, a wind-powered ice auger drilling a fishing hole by an outhouse, where a muskie peers out from a hole beside a frozen fish finder. Sid's authorship is in the lower right corner.
