Veteran angler fishes at Jennette’s Pier
John Herndon of Norfolk, Va. enjoys some bottom fishing at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head on a recent morning. At age 101, he’s been fishing for “90-some years,” according to his great niece Michelle Nikki, also pictured.
A Montana native, Herndon served in the Navy during World War II and was assigned to a mine sweeper in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. He is shown taking advantage of a section of the pier that has a lower handrail for seated visitors.
