On Sunday, Valley News staff photographer James M. Patterson noticed the hook dangling in front of the mural that was designed by Mary Lacy.
No word what kind of bait that is — one of the Upper Valley’s aggressively wiggling crazy snake worms, perhaps?
BTW, here’s a scene from August on the @vnewsuv Instagram, when the Mary Lacy mural was getting installed!
Kevin Barry, of #BarnardVT, right, playfully challenges Lindley Brainard, of #BethelVT, to a #duel with their cordless #drills while working on one of four #trout murals by artist @Mary_Lacy, of Burlington, #VT, on a retaining wall in Bethel on Monday. Barry and Brainard drilled nearly 200 holes to attach the #murals in a manner approved by the Vermont Agency of Transportation. Lacy and the volunteer crew are finishing the installation this week on the wall, built in 1940. “It’s no longer the ugliest wall in #Vermont,” Barry said.
