-Truman Roberts Andrews, in July
By Former President Grover Cleveland.
,OST of .us Avho lish in a fair, well-bred and reasonable way, for
the purpose of recreation and as a means of increasing the
table pleasures of ourselves or our friends, may Avell regret
the apparently unalterable decree which gives to all those avIio
fish, under the spur of any motive good, bad or indifferent the
name of fisherman. We certainly have nothing in common
with those avIio fish for a livelihood, unless it be a desire to
catch fish. We have, in point of fact, no c relationship
than this, Avith the murderously inclined, -whose only motive in
fishing is to make large catches, and whose sole pleasure in the
Tun-suit is the gratification of a greedy propensity. .Nevertheless, Ave, and those
"""V whom Ave have so little sympathy, are, by a sort of unavoidable law of
V cation, classed together in the same fraternity, and called fishermen,
ionally Aveak attempts have been made to classify the best of this fra
under the name of anglers, or by some title of that kind, but such
Vil'c always failed. Even Isaak Walton could not change the current
vtli.'in! thought, bv calling his Immortal' book "The Comnleat Angler." So
-seems, however much those who fish may differ in social standing, In dispo
sition and character, in motive and ambition, nud even in mode of operation,
all must abide, to the end of the chapter, in tLe contemplation of the outside
world, Avithin the brotherhood called "Fishermen." Happily, however, this
grouping of incongruous elements under a common name does not prevent
those of y-.jho properly appreciate the importance of upholding the respecta
bility ot(h-fiit fishing from coming to an agreement concerning certain causes
of congr'Alatiou and certain rules of conduct.
At wfs season, Avhen the activities of genteel fishing usually begin, it 1?
fitting that a word should be spoken that may not only redound to our com
fort and satisfaction, but may guard us against temptations that easily beset
even the best of fishermen.
We who claim to represent the highest fishing aspirations are sometimes
inclined to complain on days when tho fish refuse to bite. There can be no
worse exhibition that this of an entire misconception of a Aviso arrangement
for.ffftf benefit. We should always remember that Ave have about us on every
Wa.usanils of those Avho claim membership in the fishing fraternity, be
"" 1 a waA' tuo-'' love to fish, Avhen tho fish bite and only then. These
f, f Vonteated only when capture is constant, and their only conception of the
t, ,: Isures of fishing rests upon uninterrupted slaughter. If wc reflect for a
, jinont t;no:i tho consequences of turning an army of fishermen like these
Ise upon fish that would bito every day and every hour, Ave idiall see how
,Jely the vicissitudes of fishing have been adjusted, and how precisely and
usefully the fatal attack of discouraging bad luck selects its victims. If on
days Avh'n we catch few or no fish we feel symptoms of disappointment, these
should ifHiediately glAe way to satisfaction Avhen we remember how many
snuriou and discouraged fishermen are spending their time in hammocks or
under trees or on golf fields, instead of with fishing outfits, solely on account
of just such unfavorable days. We have no assurance that if fish could be
easily taken at all times the fishing waters within our reach Avould not be de
populated, a horrible thing to contemplate. Let it not be said that such consid
erations as these savor of uncharitableness and selfishness on our part. Wc
are only recognizing the doctrine of the survival of the fittest as applied to
fishermen, and claiming that these "fittest" should have the best chance.
What Jias been said naturally leads to the suggestion that consistency re
those of us who are right minded fishermen to reasonably limit our
"a in iho number of fish Ave should take on favorable da vs. On no ne-
)ould edible fish, be caught in such quantities as to lie Avasted. By
.ifr ourselves in this matter Ave discourage in our own natures the
J of greed, we prevent wicked Avaste, Ave make it easier for '.is to bear
between what Ave may .determine upon as decent good hick .".mi had
no luck, and wc li-ake ourselves at all points better men and better
We o.ight not to tcrget tnese tilings as we enter upon tne pleasure ot our
nt in any event let us take with us Avhen Ave go out good
d plenty of patience. If the wind is in the south or Avest,
so much the betler, b.iu ht's go, wherever tne AVind may be. If Ave catch fish,
we shall add zest to our recreation. If we catch none, we shall still have the
outing and the recreation more healthful and more enjoyable than can Le
gained in r.ny other Avay. The Independent.
