Sportsman Packs Fishing Gear 
for the Allagash

Story by Scott Hoar
Portland Press Harold
February 21, 1962

Sanford, Maine - One of the most enthusiastic participants in next weekends snowmobile through the Allagash region directed by a Yarmouth man, will be sportsman and Police Officer Jack Sevigny.

For Jack is no stranger to that remote and unpopulated which has become so controversial in recent years. He has made annual hunting and fishing trips both alone and with party of other local outdoor enthusiasts.

Additional fuel tanks are being added to Jack's sled this week and gear is piling up for the outing.

Among the equipment expected to be included into Jacks personal answer to the job of manually pulling up fishing lines.

He has developed a battery powered fishing device which at the touch of a button snaps the hooked fish right out of the water - and at a choice of speeds.

Jack devised his tackle so that the line could be brought up quickly or more slowly. A jiggling steel spring notifies the fisherman when the fish has taken the bait.

Jack reported that the device was especially good in cases where a good hand of cards is held. The fish can be landed without even missing a bid.

Another very necessary and useful piece of Jacks equipment will include a miniature gasoline stove above the size of a large mans hand.

The stove, which Jack has used for 30 years, will double as a heater for his snowmobile and a cook stove for his meals.

In fact, according to Jack, the snowmobile equipped with the hood, makes it possible and comfortable to go ice fishing without the use of as fishing shack.

Jack can set out a line of fishing lines and make the rounds swiftly and comfortably in any weather on any lake.
