As you can see, fall fishing was hot 'n heavy - Beautiful weather
On this day Swann happened to be at the dam when Canadian TV personality Italio Labignan was filming for a show.
Labignan's show is on cable TV in canada but the show can be viewed by computer. There is a link to his website below.
Swann saw what was going on but didn't recognize Italio immediately but later onin the day Italio and his
crew happened into Ed's Restaurant/Bar on Lake Road in Wilson NY and a nice conversation was struck
