Yosemite National Park seems to have been a favorite of this family throughout the years. I do not know the identity of the woman but she is in quite a few other pictures I have. View full size.

Re: Worm carrier

They caught plenty of fish.

Worm carrier.

That is what the unit is attached to her belt in front of her belly. It rotates, and a hinged lid can be lifted, allowing access to the worms. You could add some moist soil to keep the worms fresh. Close the lid, and rotating it back locks the lid and keeps the worms from falling out. I used to have one.

Oh, and I envy those that traveled this state in the wilds back in those days. I bet they had the fishing all to themselves. Didn't have to sign a permit either.
