The winner of this year's Ernest Hemingway Look-Alike Contest doesn't just physically resemble the author.
He also shares Hemingway's love of fishing and has done some writing, with aspirations to do more, reports the Associated Press.
Attorney Jon Auvil, with the help of a cream-colored sweater, defeated 124 other contestants in the annual competition held at Sloppy Joe's Bar in Key West, Florida.
Hemingway lived in Key West in the 1930s and was a regular at Sloppy Joe's during that time.
He received the Pulitzer Prize in literature for The Old Man and the Sea and is also critically praised for For Whom the Bell Tolls, A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises.
