GOOGLE BOOKS: Fishing In American Waters


Via Google Books, now reading Fishing In American Waters by Genio C. Scott, published by Harper & Brothers, 1869. Some highlights:

Fish evince no mercy for any living thing which inhabits the waters, and most of the angler’s fishes feed readily on their own broods.

Another one:

Salmonia: Or Days of Fly Fishing, by An Angler, published by J. Murray 1832

It is a large gaudy fly, and is fit for no part of this pool, except the extremely rough head of the torrent: there I dare say it will take in this state of the waters.
