Catfish on a Pole - Gone

We looked all over for the catfish on the pole, but could not find it. We stopped and asked a vegetable vendor and a wheelchair bound flag peddler, and were told that the fish came down when the restaurant that it advertised has moved.

Catfish on a Pole

A big catfish on a pole that dominates the corner of South Cobb Drive and Concord Road in Smyrna, Georgia. I see it every day -- it's about a block from my house!
