May 23, 1960
A fathom above the drowned yard of the cathedral of Old Guerrero, Texan Dave Hawk plays a largemouth bass. Once the largest city in northern Mexico, Old Guerrero became part of Falcon Lake when the Rio Grande was dammed in 1953. Now bass feed in the silent bandstand, the gloomy hotel lobby, the cathedral's pews.
