Gone fishing

From the 1960 Missouri Court of Appeals case of Moore v. Moore:

We will agree with respondent in his
definition of Stone County freedoms that a husband
has a right to go fishing. And we will go further
and say that this right extends to fishing without the
constant and ever-present impediment of female
presence and participation, if such be against the
will of the husband. It is a wise wife who accords
her husband that freedom–in moderation–and a
foolish wife who interferes.
