G. O. B., OKLA.:—Your letter of recent date addressed to OUTDOOR LIFE was forwarded to me for reply. If you like lake fishing, where the “big fellows” live, I would suggest that you go to Lake Village, Ark., which is located on Horseshoe Lake and is reached via Missouri Pacific south of Pine Bluff.

TOMORROW is opening day. My conscience tells me that there are portentous matters which deserve to be talked about in this editorial the various kinds of fanatical anti-recreation legislation that we must wipe out . . . the courageous action of the last convention of the Izaak Walton League in backing OUTDOOR LIFE'S campaign for a 15-bird duck bag limit . . . and many other matters of weight which a more sensible editor would turn his mind to.

I WONDER how the fishing is.” That’s an innocent-appearing little sentence, but it packs the stimulating wallop of four gurgles of Scotch. Get a sportsman out of bed with that slug on an empty stomach, and he’ll reel around all day. The only known black coffee for this condition is to stagger to your favorite fishing territory and soak your feet in the icy water.

SOME TESTY REMARKS ABOUT THE ANGLING PURIST

Sidney L. Harris
BACK in the “God rest ye merrie, gentlemen” days, a very delightful narrator, named Izaak Walton, felt the urge to air his views concerning the method of bridging the gap between the brook and the frying pan. Being a discerning soul, he realized that his contemporaries in the field of letters were devoting their time to themes of love, war, the chase, and “brown October ale.”

RECENT improvements in the average accuracy of .22 caliber ammunition and the practical perfection of the noncorroding qualities of present Kleanbore, Rustless, Staynless and other similar cartridges have given the small bore an increase in desirability and general effectiveness for field shooting that seriously merits the attention of sportsmen.

Over Flambeau Waters

Ben C. Robinson
UP IN the top of a big Norway pine, the first golden light of day broke with spreading swiftness. Along the rocky, birch-hung shore of the lake it was still damp and cold and misty. The two big granite rocks that stood out, even through the dim light of the dawn—marking the spot where I always had taken either a good bass or some pike from the gravel pool that lay just midway between those markers, only out perhaps 50 yards in the lake—were the objective of the two old fishermen that I was guiding that day over the Flambeau waters of Northern Wisconsin.

SINCE those first few weeks, weeks, when Dugmore and and I hunted rhino in the vicinity of Kiu, I have seen scores of the homely beasts, and feel that I have gotten fairly well acquainted with them. Naturally, we were convinced, after being charged so many times near Kiu, that all rhinos were cantankerous beasts, always hunting trouble.

She knows whereof she speaks, for she has been to the lake twice herself, although on more leisurely trips.

IT IS impossible to lay down any fixed set of rules for outboard motor operation. The type of boat used; the purpose to which it is applied (for hire, for fishing, for long trips); and the location (salt or fresh water, high or low elevation) are all factors injecting amendments into any hard and fast set of rules.

SOUTHEASTERN Alaska is the home of a large honker which has been described as the white-cheeked goose. They are residents of the country, and are said to be nonmigratory, that is, they live their lives in the same general region; they are very local, and due to hunting at all seasons are extremely wary, usually feeding far out on the tidal flats.

WHILE fly fishing for bass has become more or less popular during the past few years there are still a great many who look upon the sport as an experiment, rather than as the tried and successfully proven method of fishing which it most certainly is.

MY FRIEND Frank Newland was the cause of it. Every time he saw me he would tell me about Kagawong. I was getting fed up on Kagawong. Why, one morning he said: “I was fishing off the little island, and I got three strikes on one cast. That’s a fact.

Wet Flies and Dry

E. R. Phillips
THE question often arises as to whether the dry fly is generally as killing as the wet. If I were to figure fishing every single day of an open season, from daylight to dark, I believe that more trout, especially rainbows, natives and steelheads, could be killed on the sunken flies than on floaters.

THE seventh annual convention of the Izaak Walton League of America, held in Chicago, April 18 to 20, marked the dawn of a new day in conservation. The conservation and recreational needs in America were more thoroughly discussed than at any previous gathering of outdoor enthusiasts, but the real significance of the gathering was the shoulder-to-shoulder harmony among conservation leaders which was clearly evident on all sides.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
It is human nature, from the standpoint of the individual, to Protect the friend and destroy the enemy. This, however, seems not to be the viewpoint taken by the government in relation to the sea gull. Many years ago, without properly investigating or considering the certain and serious results, laws were passed giving to this feathered highwayman the protection of the government and the right to kill and destroy valuable food.

It would be most interesting to hear the remarks of Izaak Walton, if it were possible, regarding the “Heap Big Heroes” in “The Hero’s Corner” of the April OUTDOOR LIFE. But the one big thing that all good sportsmen would like to hear would be the remarks of any of our California Justices before whom Messrs. Goodwin and Carns certainly would be invited to appear if such a stunt should be attempted here.

"BIG game” fishing is usually associated with strenuous activity, volleying white waters and treacherous pools difficult of access. There is a long hike over a rock-strewn, brushy trail, stormy weather or a plague of mosquitoes and a thousand other obstacles which nature places in the way of the sportsman.

EARLY as it is yet for 1929 outboarding in most regions, interesting stories of outboard activities have been coming in not only from all corners of the United States but from foreign countries as well. As early as New Year's Day, and as far north as Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., an outboard race was held.

OLD MAN PUGET must have had wonderful vision, considering that there were no motor boats in those days when he tackled his big job, for old-timers tell us that it was he who dug the great sound which lies in the northwestern corner of the United States, and which bears his name.

A Story of the Old Oregon Trail

Joseph G. Masters
WHEN the student of history comes finally to write the annals of the Far West, he will need to give much space to its famous old trails. The old Oregon Trail was the empire builder of the West and Northwest. Along its vast reaches of over 2,200 miles crept those white-winged argonauts, the prairie schooners, that were to make the golden days of the West so significant in the story of mankind.

IF YOU lose your fishing rod, or other good-sized article in deep lake or stream, locate the spot, and buoy it. Then attach a number of good-sized fishing hooks to a length of flexible wire at intervals of a foot or so. Fasten weights or sinkers to keep it to the bottom, then drag the waters in all directions and with patience you will likely bring up the lost article.

Assuming that he has been taught his name, that he will obey ordinary commands and that be is developing into the matured animal, the time has now come when the more serious lessons of yard training are inculcated.

THE dog should always have a place that he may consider entirely his own. Occasionally the owner of a single dog may give him a box in the house or in the basement and probably this answers the purpose, but making hothouse plants of dogs was never one of my theories.

"HANDSOME is as handsome does” is a saying that applies specifically to the sportsman’s dog. Any practical man would sacrifice good looks for utility when it comes to selecting a dog for actual work, whether it be a bird dog, a hound or a beagle, but he who is able to secure a combination of the two is doubly fortunate.

ALTHO breeders in general have been somewhat diffident in blending the blood of imported dogs with our American strains, many of those interested in the improvement of the pointer have long ago discovered that an infusion thru various successful English strains has proved not only beneficial in the first generation, but has had a leavening effect in many other ways.

EARL BROWN
Just a few lines to let you know that I especially enjoyed William Ollard’s article, “The Irish Terrier As a Sporting Dog.” I have an Irish terrier of the very best blood I could obtain and he is everything that could be found in a dog. I do not raise them or sell them, but I am strong in my praise for this breed and I only hope to read more about them through the columns of your magazine.

THE dog that is proficient on all kinds of upland game is considered by many an almost impossible combination, but many an owner who enjoys the pastime of handling and training his own dogs is the proud possessor of animals that answer this description.

Editor:—I am looking for a dog that will suit my purposes and though I have looked over the advertising columns of outdoor magazines, I do not seem to be able to find what I am looking for. My home is in the Berkshires with the usual thick New England cover, and our game birds consist chiefly of woodcock and pheasant, for we are not killing partridges (ruffed grouse) until they begin to recover from the plague from which they have suffered so severely of late years.

Question:—I have a 4-year-old fox terrier which has suffered all of his life with stomach trouble. There is a growl to his bowels and by placing your hands on his stomach you can feel the disturbance within. He is subject to these spells and they last about one or two days and during them he will not eat.

Please tell me what herbs or roots the Indians used for snake bite that gave such quick relief. Sometimes we don’t happen to have our snake venom hypo with us when we are in the woods. —Dr. F. A. Strobel, Ga. Answer:—There are no herbs which will “cure” a snake bite.
