Can Trash Catch Fish?

All this talk of carp and Kirk claiming he could catch one on a piece of trash had me doing some interesting Google searches this morning and I came across this old ad. I had to post it. I can't believe they used to legally be able to put this on T.V. Come to where the cancer is...

Can trash, catch fish if fashioned on a hook? I dare Kirk to try and catch a carp or any other fish for that matter on a piece of trash. Perhaps on this butt fly, but a piece of river trash...no way.

What you do think?
