I have fished with Mr. W. H. Wood in his boat, watching his every movement, gathering from him all the hints he gives of his large experience to those who frankly confess themselves novices in the art. I have seen many fine speci mens taken and many more unfortunately lost, so I may justly claim a right to explain as simply as possible the ex act modus operandi which is up to date the most approved.
