  • Short Summary

    Men fish through holes in in frozen lakes in Ontario.

  • Description

    Canada.

    "Over in Ontario, where Jack Frost closes down the lakes, the winter fishers get busy." Panning shot of what looks like a large frozen lake with little huts placed upon it. We see two fishermen cutting a hole in the ice to fish through. C/U of the hole. They then tow a hut along the ice to place over the hole. C/U of the man inside his little hut spearing fish. He uses what looks like a gardening fork. He throws the fish out of the hut each time he spears one. He proudly presents his catch to the camera. C/U of the fish, laid out on a piece of paper.
