After you have packed your varied button of plugs, wabhlers, spoons and lur In your tackle box. with the sur plus jammed Into your grip, don't forget the Bumble pork rind, because It's sure TOt some "rep" behind it to back It up as a flah getter. Vfhen you have tried to tease the fish OB to your hook with every bait you can think of and failed to Arouse their curi osity. Just put a nice Juicy strip or chunk o fat pork on th hook, and If that don't make their mouths water they surely must t seasick or on a diet. Many hi fish have been caught with the fat sld of the pig, and your kit is ndt complete, without a fair Filed plC of pork. Buy It in a rhunk with the rind on and out it up each day as you a la oarta It to the fish. Keeping It in a chunk saves It from drying out. Tha best kind of pork to buy Is that commonly called salt pork ; or, aa th sailor name it, salt hoss ; but ret the fresh pork whenever possible, as it is stronger and makes a livelier ball. This pork Is white, and makes an at tractive lure for bass, pickerel, irs.ll ayod plk, and even the muskie will giro It the once over If it's a fair slied chunk. ITovr to rut Pork nind Rait.

Th Isrgs rock In North Bay. though not entlrsly out of water, produced some excellent fly fishing, and I spent Mveral most pleasant evening there, taking a goodly number of trout, non of which weighed Its than a pound and two going over two pound nd a quarter. The favorite file seemed to be Parma oheene Ball and Black Onat. The rocks along th road about a mile and a half from th Mount Klneo House were alio splendid. I waa with Mr. Noble of the Harrlman National Bank of New York one day whan he loot a square tall that would hav gnn four pounds easily through tha breaking of tho gut on his fly. The favorite trolling grounds was oft Dugar Island, where salmon seemed to be In plentiful numbers. I took a beautiful live pound flah there one evening, to gether with several fine togue, and the fight the big fellow gave m will b a long remembered one.
