Suited for smallmouth: Fish of the Week, tie & all

SHARE Suited for smallmouth: Fish of the Week, tie & all

Perfectly suited for smallmouth bass.

Eileen Radasevich nominated her husband Rudy, who stops on his way home from the train in Naperville to try to catch a few fish in the DuPage River in town, for FOTW.

“Here is a picture of Rudy and a big smallie – and yes, he is in a suit and tie!,’’ his proud wife emailed.

Something about this FOTW fits just right.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page. The story part matters as much as the big fish part, as this FOTW amply shows.
