While the fish pulls you give line;

trick of p'ke, rs well as large pickerel,
l to dnrt toward the angler right under
tho boat. This difficult problem I1 best
KiHed by sitting down In the end of
ihe boat nnd then plunging tho rod
under water and reeling In as fast ;is
Another crafty device ery common

quietly almo'it to the boat and then to
make, n rapid dai.li away, taking anglers,
(specially novices, completely hy sur
prise so that Homo part or the tackle
glcs way nnd they get off,
Country fishermen ure familiar with
these peculiar notions and are very skil
ful In preventing disaster. The play of
n pickerel Is exactly similar to the pike,
except In a less strenuous manner. The
ptay of tioth fish when caught In rivers
Is more difficult nnd prolonged because
of the running water and obstructions
After the fish have censed running bnck
and forth they become so spent n to
turn ddewlse, showing the white under
side: It Is then tlmo tn draw them near,
either to gaff or net them. The Inlter
mode Is the enfer If you have 11 laign
salmon net, I'lace It well under the
body, facing the head, mill keeping the
line tight, and lift It In the boat. If
tho fish la very large, up to five feet
long, a gaff la the better Instrument.
To gaff a fish hold the handle firm
till the fish in still, because when tho
fish la moving you nre liable to slip tho j
point along the tough skin. The gaff 1
hook Khould be Inserted near the middle
of the body, that It may ho well bal
anced In lifting; otherwise If hooked
near the head or tall of soalong a Huh
the latter will kick Itself free and bieak

The true dolphin (the fish tloryphw

krow as th. porjiolfe, but the latter Is
ni,l a fish, but a fcP' cle of whale and Is
an air breathing, milk giving creature,
hardly if ever taken with a rod.
With a friend 1 had been fishing on
one of the numerous reefs that form
the gieat barrier reef of Klotida, ex

WILL WORLD'S CAST
RECORD BE BROKEN?
.Contenders Think t OH Feet

It Is the belief of casters that the
, world's record ntnde by Dr. Carleton
Stmon Inst year at the tournament of the
Asbury Park Fishing Cluh stands a
chance of being broken at the tourna
ments to lie held this year.
Dr. Simon on August 7, 1515, made a
now record when he cast .1T feet und S
Inche. on a linen line with a four ounce
Everything, of course, will depend
upon weather conditions as to whether
Dr. Sitnoii or some other i.intor will iro
befi.l tho omcl.il rci'nrd at ihU fa-
j .ori's tournaments.
I IT. Simon has bettered his world's
record . many times In pia. tl. r.
