Fishing with a spear.

Carmelo Gaeta sez: “Jay, this is my cousin David. He’s a life-long resident of Atwater he’s been in and out of the River his whole life. Spear fishing in the river is his latest hobby. He makes his own spears. The design is based off the traditional Hawaiian Sling with some of his own backyard technique added for good measure. I’m sure those that come across him, with his camo’d out gear and 10 foot long spear, might feel a bit intimidated by this appearance, but I assure you he’s a good dude and means no harm to anyone. The fish he spears are donated to the urban campers along the L.A. River.”
