Fishing Bait Vending Machine

20080820-fishbaitvendo.jpgGive a man a fish, they say, and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish, and he'll eat forever—as long as he has bait.

Continuing our series of wacky food-vending machines is this one, sent in by my friend Sydney. She says, "This was bizarre. My cousin took a photo of a bait-vending machine in Idaho. Somehow I thought it would be of some strange interest to you and your Serious Eats compatriots."

It is.

Yeah, it's not directly food-related, but I think I've made my point on how it can indirectly score you some food. I think my dad will like this post, as will you, HunterAnglerGardenerCook.
