This short bass fishing video was produced by The American Mutoscope and Biograph Co. in 1903.

A man in fashionable sporting attire is standing on some large rocks at the edge of a stream. He is holding a short fishing rod in his hands and casting into the running stream. The film ends as the fisherman kneels at the edge of the water, holding the reel in his left hand while he hauls in the fish with a net held in his right hand. There are several occasions when the fisherman cannot be seen, as he walks out of camera range.
