It will be noted that I have devoted more space, proportionately, to fly fishing for black bass than have other writers, for the following reasons the more general distribution of the bass offers a far greater number of anglers an opportunity to take them on a fly rod it is a phase of angling that is becoming amazingly popular it is a subject that most angling writers have neglected and on which there is little definite data. I acknowledge with thanks permission granted me by the publishers of the Chicago Tribune to include here some material that I had written for their columns. I also thank Call J. McCarthy for posing for pictures Oscar G. Lundberg for taking them William Mills Son, Abbey Imbrie and Hardy Brothers for permission to reproduce illustrations from their catalogues and many brothers of the angle who have otherwise assisted me-may the South Wind always blow when they go angling.
