American and English Angling.
In America, owing to the fact that
the dry fly angler fishes'the water
and not the rise, wet and dry fishing
are far more closely related than Is
the case In England where the orth
odox sportsman stalks the trout, cast
ing exclusively to a rising and feeding
fish from this it may be easily de
duced that much of the following dis
cussion on the subject of fishing with
floating flies is—is the very nature
of things mm- be—equaUy applicable
to either dry or wet fly fishing.
Moreover, angling conditions are
such in this country that the fly fish
erman, to be consistently successful,
cannot rely solely upon either one
method or the other—he should be
'passably expert with either the dry
-or the wet fly, employing one or the
other as conditions warrant or the oc
casion renders Imperative. Dry tiy
fishing conditions here and in Eng
land are quite dissimilar. The Eng
gish dry fly specialist follows his
sport, in general, upon the gin clear,
quiet chalk streams slow, placid riv
ers, preserved waters artificially
stocked with brown trout (salmo fa

The Red Book Magazine
Arthur Stringer, whose latest serial
story "The Call," met with great suc
cess, has a most Interesting short
story in the May number of the Red
Book Magasise, which has just been
issued. The story called "The Jug

heart of the editor, the "crackerat
the end." It tell* of a playwright
whose efforts meet with failure until
things have got so bad with him that
his wife leaves him. From there on,
it would be difficult for even the most
blase reader to conjecture the end.
This number of the Red Book maga
zine has a number of stories with -ex
ceptional endings. There is "A pa
triot,' by Earl Derr_ Diggers, which
tells of a young man who served" his
country by winning a girl, "A Con
