Rev. Smith has taken his two favorite sports, fishing and riflery, and combined them into an exciting new pastime: shooting fish in a barrel. All this week Smith has been in practice for what he hopes will be accepted as an exhibition event at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. “It’s not as easy as it sounds,” commented Smith between firing rounds from his brand new Weatherby Orion Side-by-Side .41 gauge shotgun. “Once that barrel fully disintegrates, those fishes can really move.” Added Smith, “For a while, at least.”
