Fishing Lines of the Dramatic Kind

Norm Jones is used to learning his lines. As a professional actor, director and assistant professor of theatre arts, he's familiar with the tides of emotions and tricks actors have use to catch an audience's attention. 
This summer, though, Norm's been using some different lines—fishing lines from his kayak! In early mornings, he equips his kayak with radar devices and just the right baits to find fish in Beverly harbor, a few miles from his home in Salem. 
"I love being on the water any way I can," Norm says. "This summer on the kayak has been a fun way to relax and let the creative juices flow in a new way. And the fishing's been pretty good too!"
This week, he caught a few striped bass. But they were too small so he tossed them back and threw out another line. Here's to catching something more dramatic, Norm!
