Actually, you can trace the origins of the wiper to Dr. Robert E. Stevens, 1965, and the Moncks Corner Striped Bass Fishery. Isn't that a hoot, Moncks Corner? He made the wiper and shipped it to a guy on Cherokee Lake, TN whire it was first introduced on Easter Day, 1965. It does have Biblical proportions written all over it, but the fish itself is manmade, although I will gleefully credit God with the pattern. That's one thing I love about wipers; if you need more, you just make them.

Moncks Corner! :)
As for those wipers hanging out at the base of the dam, that makes sense, if you think about it.
They "originated" in the lake, where they were stocked.
The Lake is imprinted as where they want, have to get back to.
So they hang out at the base of the dam, as close and possible to the "lake".
???
Just the way I think.
