    Chapters are devoted to rods, reels, lines and leaders, lures, and incidental equipment, as well as specific techniques fishermen can use and the advantages and proper handling of each. The double paddle makes less splash than the oars, and if one can use the Canadian single blade, it does not make any noise at all. A more important point is, that a cheap rod is always a dear rod, in price alone. I got nervous, upset my canoe and rolled into the water, but waded on shore and landed my fish. In using a minnow, I pass the hook up through the lower lip and out the nostril; it then lives a long time. Error compounded error, most of the time, but a clearer picture began to form.

    Any boy may catch sun-fish, suckers, or trout with a bean pole, a piece of cord for a line and a rude nondescript bait. The book is divided by county then further broken down by flowing waters and still waters. These will be interesting to the historian of science, and of bass science in particular. With that, it did answer the questions that I had about fishing for Crappies. Take this sentence, for example: Now, it is possible to be scientific and be an angler, too, but or science, like our angling, must be practical and must of necessity be learned by close observation and study of the habits of the fishes as they exist in nature, and not alone from the study of the physical construction of a preserved specimen.

    As one crosses the bridge they raise their weather-eye and look up, but do not move, whilst hundreds of young bass, an inch or two in length, shoot from the innumerable crevices like so many fresh-water shiners. The bull-heads and dobsons will float, stunned, into its meshes. If fishing from a bank, I get as near the level of the water as possible, and when a fish is hooked, I head at once to the deepest water practicable. Chapters are devoted to rods, reels, lines and leaders, lures, and incidental equipment, as well as specific techniques fishermen can use and the advantages and proper handling of each.

The best bait here has proved to be live bait, minnows, or frogs. My experience is that it pays better to buy bait than hunt for it, which takes up time and tires one.

The Erroneous Classic : Dr. James A. Henshall’s Book of the Black Bass

He is indeed, the father of bass fishing in this country. If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout. Spine of the B. In using a minnow, I pass the hook up through the lower lip and out the nostril; it then lives a long time.

This is a point of greater importance than is commonly supposed. If this be thrown with a sweeping surface draw under trees or bushes, it is almost irresistible. By the time Henshall died, it was an invasive presence stocked for game in nearly all the lower 48 states.

A sombre suit of clothes, the hue of which mingles with the foliage or verdure, is a wise precaution, for fish undoubtedly see, and see remarkably well. Furthermore, Henshall was limited by tackle options in those days, fly lines were made of silk and horse hair that had to be hung and dried after use, and bait casting reels —minnow casters, he calls them — were a new idea.

Black bass are a fish of an entirely different type, and the day when a black bass rod was considered to mean one weighing two pounds and measuring sixteen feet, with a chalk line, and a reel like a small clock, is delegated to the far off past of ten years ago.

And if it was worthy of study, it was worthy on the end of a line. He was writing 64 years before the end of WWII, which brought finally equipped modern bass anglers with the plastic and fiberglass they needed to ply their trade, and nearly one hundred years before a man named Ray Scott founded B.

The difference is that recent publications think of the In-Fisherman catalog use verified science to discuss bass behaviors. They may be kept alive any length of time if placed in a can containing rotten wood. In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout's food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation.

Anglers, as a rule, are unable to go far a-field in search of fresh-water fishing, and for six years past it was a continual thorn in my flesh, mortifying me considerably, that no information could be obtained of any good fishing that did not necessitate an absence of several days.

The fish seeing no splash, only the passing shadow of the silent canoe, took my fly readily, and in the early morning I was sure of a fairly good catch. I have known bass to be caught on a bare bright hook, and the funny stories one laughs at about wintergreen berries and fish scales proving attractive bait are not so much out of probability.

As a matter of fact, I suggest that you skip this book all together. If a man can throw a minnow thirty yards with any degree of accuracy, he should be well satisfied, as that is more than sufficient for average bass fishing.

Jordan alone is credited with identifying more fishes than any scientist in history. The stream is about eighteen feet wide at the narrowest part and from fifty to sixty at its widest.

The butt is white ash, and the second joint and tip finely selected lancewood. Here Henshall begins with rods debating types of wood — Greenheart or Cedar? Distance, about two miles. Henshall's name will always be associated with the Black Bass.

Salt-water fishing is grand sport, but there are many denizens of a city who have been reared in the districts of fresh-water streams, lakes and ponds, who have not had the opportunities of cultivating salt-water sport, and who even when surrounded with every facility for its pursuit, would still be elated at finding some well-stocked stream near at hand.

The braided line to me is the perfection of excellence. At daybreak on fine mornings, when camping there for a day or two, I have caught in less than an hour half a dozen two-pound bass, not counting other fish and small bass which I tossed back. It is on the Erie railroad and has several good hotels and a club house open during the summer.

As I noted earlier, Henshall was not a great writer, nor was he accurate, in describing the Black Bass, but he was the first to do so at length and you can see it all — the obsession, the pseudo-science, the real science, the bias and opinion, the pursuit of advantage — of modern bass fishing being assembled in this book.Oct 27,  · Book of the Black Bass by Dr.
