Flint Photos: Riverbank Fishing


  1. Is it just me or does the fisherman look like he's kinda leery of the dude with the camera? What'd you do, Gordo -- ambush 'em?

  2. In this case it just came out that way. We'd had a conversation about fishing and I asked if I could take a picture. He does look like he'd like me to get lost, though.

  3. I graduated 1972 from Northwestern Sr. High School and I had been away from Flint since I was 21 yrs. of age with the exception of my Uncle's funeral and my Mother's funeral. This past week, I went back and the weather was fantastic!!! compared to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas which has had 11 days straight of over 100 degrees. It was great seeing my family and seeing the beauty of Mt. Morris, MI. I miss the days in the 50's, 60's, 70's when I lived there and my Dad was working for General Motors Fisher Body Plant as a General Assemblyman; he passed on shortly after retiring.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
