Yep, we'd check around the barn and old buildings until we found a paper wasp nest, knock it down with a stick or stone, grab it and run like hell!

Very nice bait container, actually. Just peel back the paper, pick out an unhatched wasp and put him on the hook, drop it in the water. Fish on every time!
Yep, and grubs too.
