Walleye and the Beaver

I got a nice e-mail yesterday from Bill Cronberg, the proprietor of the Beaver House, in response to yesterday’s post.

Thanks for the comments regarding our big fish. It is probably one of the most photographed structures in town. The idea originated from my oldest son, Marty who dreamed of creating the Walleye and having it go through the roof and out the front door. He conceived the idea while a teenager, (he is now in his late 40's). He was able to bring his dream to fruition about 15 years ago when a local artist collaborated with Marty on the construction and then painted the lifelike walleye.

National Geographic, Discover and several other magazines and newspapers have taken pictures of it as well.
