Storyline

Alderman Coyle Shea takes an afternoon off and goes fishing. He is rather old fashioned in his ideas of angling, and views with contempt the elaborate and complicated paraphernalia displayed by a young man whom he runs across at the brook. A sinker and a cheap line attached to a pole is good enough for Shea, but after he hooks and loses a fish, and sees the young man land a two-pounder with ease, he gets interested in a rod and line. The young man obligingly gives him a lesson. Just as Shea lands a good big one they are surprised by Dave Higgins and his hired man, who have crept unobserved and removed a pile of brush from a sign forbidding fishing on the grounds. They propose to haul Shea and the young man before the local justice for a trespass fine, but the young man sees through the sign trick and when Higgins proposes to let them off for $10 each, he flashes the "stand-by" signal to Shea and proceeds to dump the farmers into the creek. Shea and the young man make good their escape... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
