For several generations, all sorts of people with a hook to grind have worked long and hard to make bass fishermen smarter. Now, some fishery professionals in the Lone Star State are trying to make bass dumber. Biologists at the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife are reportedly working hard to develop a strain of largemouth bass that will strike a lure with abandon.

As an avid subscriber to FIELD & STREAM for more than twenty years, I wish to extend my best wishes to Ed Zern, absolutely the funniest man in the his retirement. I do this with profoundly mixed emotions, however. I am sure every reader of his column over the past thirty-three years has shared my experience of being sore in the sides for days after reading “Exit Laughing.”

CONSPICUOUS CONSUMPTION
For many, fly fishing is like a delicious food; once tasted, it becomes a craving, and it’s hard to get enough of a good thing.

I SAW THIS LITTLE HOMILY EMbroidered on a pillow in the Orvis catalog, and it has been rattling around in my head ever since. Never mind “catch and release,” because that avoids the point. So does eating in the everyday sense; but since “eat” is the crux of this, I looked it up in my 10-pound dictionary.

DAVID E. PETZAL
IN A SIMPLER TIME, LIFE OPERATED by a few immutable rules. One of them was that you were responsible for your own actions. However, thanks to the untiring efforts of the American legal system, today this notion is as dead as the 45 rpm record. The killer, in this case, is the product liability suit, and although some of these are justified, in many instances a person who has acted with sublime stupidity has been able to collect megabucks from the manufacturer of the product that injured him (or her).

SOME OF THE MOST skillful “turkey hunting” I’ve ever seen took place on the porch of a hunting lodge in Alabama. It was April, but a photographer wanted to re-create the mood of deer season in January, so Bo Pitman, the manager and head guide, handed out orange caps to a few camo-clad turkey hunters and asked us to sit on the porch and talk deer.

NO DOUBT, MY FIRST IMpression of wampus bread was not hurt by the atmosphere. It was the first Saturday in October—a day I’ve had no trouble getting up for since my first dove shoot, back in 1959. But with the exuberance of youth almost passed now, I’m not sure whence to attribute my lingering fondness for dove hunting.

"THE THING ABOUT GRIZZLIES IS THEIR HIGH intelligence,” declared my friend Hosea, the greatest bear student I ever knew. “Every one I have ever met in the woods has tried to read my mind. There isn’t any question that the grizzly in modern times—since man carries a high-power rifle—recognizes man as a superior sort of beast, though in no way reconciled that he is master.

WE ASKED OUR illustrious experts what they would put in a time capsule designed to in form people in the future what fishing in the twentieth century was really like. A common choice was a bamboo rod, to represent the best of the old; various flies; and several reels, including the first Fin-Nor fly reel, which made it possible to catch very large fish on fly tackle; a red Ambassadeur 5000 reel, because it revolutionized revolving-spool reel design and led to about a billion fewer backlashes; and a spinning reel, which helped make angling simple and available to everyone.

The great Eastern meltdown is underway, a sure sign that a new fishing season is about to begin. While the time of ice-out may vary across the region, the one common denominator is the often excellent openwater fishing in the weeks just after ice-out, and the opportunity to take a number of cold-water species at or near the surface.

J.R.
Lake Marburg, a 1,275-acre impoundment east of Hanover, Pennsylvania, is a popular spot with local anglers looking for early-season fishing action. Yellow perch are the predominant catch, but walleyes, pike, bass, and crappies also grab lures and baits worked along Marburg’s shoreline or in deep water at dropoffs.

On more than a dozen rivers of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, fishery experts are undertaking a program they hope will open up prime spawning waters for the first time in 150 years. One of the top priorities is Maryland's Patapsco River Watershed, on which strategically placed fishways stand to open more than 350 acres of historic spawning habitat.

A.D. LIVINGSTON
Sound is the secret to the head-knocker worm rig's success. The rig consists of three metal balls strung up in front of a plastic worm. When retrieved along the bottom with short hops, the balls make a clicking sound that attracts bpss. At one time, secretive anglers in Georgia drilled holes in steel ball bearings to make head knockers, but it's easier to use solid brass beads, which are heavy as well as rustless, and make a nice click as compared to the dull thud of lead.

Try using long jigging poles, ultralight rods and reels, 4to 8-pound fishing line, and fraction-of-anounce jigs, crankbaits, spoons, or spinners. Granted, this type of fishing gear is more likely to be used by crappie anglers than bass fishermen, who normally would not want to risk losing a heavyweight trophy on too-small tackle.

TRY to avoid submerging the rear axle of your car when you launch a trailered boat, because water may get into the axle housing and contaminate the lubricant. If the axle should go under, play it safe by draining and replacing the fluid. THROWING dishwater and cooking liquids into the bushes around a campsite attracts unwelcome visitors, such as ’coons, skunks, and insects.
