Fly-fishing for Trout
The most common method of catching trout is to use bait, such as worms, grasshoppers, beetles, and shiners, the worms being most often used. In recent years, however, a new phase of scientific angling has become popular, taking trout on the artificial fly. The fly is by no means a new thing. Isaac Walton used it back in 1600, and up to 1900 it was occasionally used by the really scientific fishermen, the average angler, however, resorting to worms.
After 1900 it was proved that it took twice as much skill to take trout on the fly as on the worm, and also since the speckled trout were diminishing because of heavy fishing, pollution, and factories, it showed better sportsmanship to catch them on flies.
About 1920 the phrase “Give the fish a chance” became popular. This awoke the fishermen’s sporting blood, and today we find fly-fishing gradually becoming predominant. Of the many trout fishermen in the United States, three-quarters of them use flies.
However, don’t get the impression that worms are impractical for bait! As a matter of fact, they have to be used in early spring fishing when the streams are high, cold, discolored, and when hundreds of natural worms are being carried downstream; but in June when the insects are humming, the water’s normal, and the flies are hatching (yes, mosquitoes too!), the trout feed heavily and naturally on these insects, and therefore it is the correct time to use artificials.
The artificial fly is divided into two classes the wet fly and the dry fly. The wet fly is supposed to imitate a half-drowned fly that is faintly struggling in the current or a shiner and an underwater fly. It is divided into the bucktail, streamer, nymph, and ordinary wet hackle.
The dry fly is intended to imitate a floating insect such as the may-fly, which, as its name suggests, hatches in May and falls off the tree branches into the stream, which causes the trout to come to the surface and feed on them. As the natural fly floats, so the artificial has to float, which is accomplished by special equipment. The dry fly is divided into the fanwing, spentwing, bivisible, and ordinary dry hackle. To take trout on dry flies is an art in itself, requiring the highest degree of skill and patience.
On the casting of the fly, which is a book in itself, I shall say nothing to my bored readers, but until May is here with its rich, new foliage, humming insects, and warm days, may the trout rest in peace and wait for the bombardment of thousands of flies, both real and artificial.

THE CHRONICLE 17
She had never seen such beautiful metal fittings. All chromium, and they shone like the Pearly Gates — so different from the brass of the Old Building, which even though polished daily, looked its thirty-six years,— and then some. She was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more.
She turned and looked at the spacious files. She bet that they worked easily without catching quite unlike the rusty files of the Old Building. But the old files seemed to fit in with their surroundings and the surroundings were as bad as the files, and, oh well, she was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more.
She snuggled close to one side of the big comfy swivel chair in which she was seated. The soft, springy seat was warm and probably wasn’t any inducement to work very hard. But the chairs in the Old Building — There wasn’t a word hard enough to describe them. And as she leaned her head back against the smooth felt cushions, she was glad she didn’t work in the Old Building any more.
Scarlet geraniums, four just alike, stood tall and straight on the stands made for them. They looked well-cared for — so much so that they almost seemed smug. In the Old Building there used to be a fern, but it died one winter, and no one had ever brought another plant. And because of the geraniums’ cheerfulness, she was glad she worked in The New Building.
It certainly had been hard to get the transfer, but she had worked for it and she got it. The other girls laughed when they knew she was working for a transfer, but in the end the joke was on them. She had received it.
She glanced at the beautiful black and silver wall clock. Nine o’clock. She gasped aloud. She had come right from dinner and had been here two hours. This was no way to start. And shifting her two hundred and eighteen pounds from the chair to the floor, she started to wash the wonderful floor, a smile on her face.

Hobbies are a pastime
Leading to lots of fun,
No one knows the pleasure Until they have begun.
Collecting stamps or stones,
Pictures and beautiful art,
Collecting anything your fancy desires Is educational on your part.
Beginning with a stone or two Or many another suggestion,
Soon you’ll be the possessor
Of a large and interesting collection.
