Going fishing and being Amish are quite compatible. It's a chance to get free food (as long as you don't buy your bait) from nature's bounty (catfish, bass) and spend time outdoors with family and friends in an environment that doesn't require a lot of modern amenities. Ice fishing is popular among the Amish in winter and during warm weather whole families get in on the fun. This is a photo taken over the weekend at Indian Lake in Ohio. I'm guessing that these Amish are from nearby Belle Center where open buggies are relatively common. Thanks to Diann for the photo.
