On Wellesley island, some fish are just for decoration

Listen to this story
If you plan to go fishing on the St. Lawrence River this summer, near Wellesley Island, chances are you might buy your tackle from Lloyd Wood, or Woody. He's run a little bait and tackle shop on the Cross Island Road for more than 20 years.

But he's also known for his folk art, turning plastic soda bottles into ornamental fish that sway in the breeze around his shop. Todd Moe stopped by Woody's Bait and Tackle for today's Heard Up North.
