Was just watching "Bailey's Bad Boy" and it got me to thinking about all the times fishing is either referenced or shown in the show. Thought it might make an interesting discussion.

  • Howard and Old Sam and Mayor Stoner and Eagle Eye Annie come to immediate mind.

  • Andy and Opie in the manhunt episode.

  • “Opie and the Bully”and Hodie Snitch!


  • Just watching “Opie Finds a Baby.”  Starts out with Opie and Arnold coming back from fishing, poles in hand.

    • The opening scene in that epsiode has always been hard for me to swallow- No way would Aunt Bee allow that smelly tackle box on her breakfast table!


  • You get a line, I’ll get a pole, honey.

  • In the first episode aunt Bea was fishing with Andy and Opie.

    In Opies Rival Miss Peggy was fishing with Andy and Opie.

    In The Jinx Andy and Barney were fishing with Henry Bennett.

    In Baileys Bad Boy Andy and Opie were fishing with Ron Bailey.


  • David Browne, the hobo, could talk to the fish.

  • Andy and Helen got busted for fishing at Myers lake without a license.

  • In, 'A Singer Comes To Town', Keevy Hazelton visits Mayberry for a little fishing.
