IF IT'S easy, Ned Schafer, who took the photographs for the picture story "Blues !" doesn't wish to do it. He didn't start fishing with a bent pin, but with a casting rod and squid in the New Jersey break ers near Elberon, where he was born. At Yale, he picked one of the most grueling of sports-rowing.

A. G. MORRIS
EVER since a dry summer in 1912, I have been a firm believer in restocking streams with fish that will live. That summer every farm pond in the country went dry, and the only fish that seemed likely to survive were those in a few spring-fed creeks.

STURGEON fishing in the Snake River in Idaho, while not important as a sport, is growing in value as a means of conserving wildlife. These formidable fish, taken on set lines baited with eels, are being used by the U. S. Bureau of Biological Survey to make scent which attracts coyotes to traps.

EDITOR Outdoor Life
ANY MAN can be admired for casting a fly 183 ft. in a tournament pool. But the man I admire more is the one who finds a good spot of trout water 80 ft. out from a brushy stream bank, and, with a closer approach impossible, shoots his line out skillfully enough to get a rise.

HAVING lived in big game country all my life, it's no thrill for me merely to go out and kill game, but I get a whale of a lot of enjoyment out of a trip back into virgin game country where I won't bump into a bunch of other hunters. I like to hunt in an old buckskin shirt, not dressed up like a racketeer's bride in the hope that some greenhorn won't mis take me for a bull elk or a grizzly.

NORMANDY and trout! It was a new thought to me. Normandy had always been associated in my mind with two things only. It was the ancient duchy from which William the Conqueror had made his jump into England that time when he put King Harold down for the count at Hastings, and so changed English history.

WHEN the deer season is over, there is hardly a hunter whose memory is not haunted by the recollection of the old buck he did not kill. My own life is especially rich in memories of deer I did not kill. I know that this sounds negative, but I hold that much can be learned from our failures.

WITH gulls wheeling and screaming overhead, and the hungry blues leaping and splashing in the slick that stretches like a satin ribbon toward the horizon, the bluefisherman clears the decks for action. From that moment on, gamy blues will be coming over the side as fast as the angler can wear them down.

MOST any angler will concede that the speckled trout is smart. Not the smartest of the clan, if you ask me. Not possessed of the uncanny wisdom of the alien brown, for instance. But he's a long way from subnormal, and the angler who catches him knows how to fish.

BIRDS were plentiful in southern New Hampshire in the fall of 1917. One Saturday afternoon in October was particularly memorable, not only for the delightful shooting, but because on that occasion I made the acquaintance of a young lady who, indirectly, changed the pattern of my life.

ABOVE the dude ranches of the lower Sangre De Cristo Range, in northeastern New Mexico, lies a stretch of elk territory which is open to hunters holding special permits for a short season each year. In an area of about 225 square miles, bounded by Baldy, Elk Mountain, and Truchas peaks, it is estimated there are between 500 and 1,100 elk.

AN ANGLER usually starts on a fishing trip with a definite purpose in mind. That purpose is to catch a certain kind of fish in a certain manner. But, all too often, his hopes are never realized. The fish either won't strike or they will be taking some bait other than the kind he is fishing.

SOUTH AMERICA with its River of Doubt, steaming jungles, treeless plains, and towering peaks has always had a fascination for me. When the new wing, designed for habitat groups of the animal life of the continent to the south of us, was added to the Colorado Museum of Natural His tory, in Denver, three of us, F. W. Mill er, F. E. D'Amour, and myself, were assigned to collect groups of tapirs, jaguars, pumas, ocelots, red wolves, capybaras, peccaries, deer, monkeys, and smaller mammals and birds.

NOW, Mister, you've struck my pet peeve. Sure, these horses are gentle. We don't go in for rodeo stuff on this job. With corrals at the mouths of a dozen canyons leading up into the hills, and more than 200 saddle horses, mules, and burros to wrangle, we can't be bothered with the wild ones.

WILLIAM HARNDEN FOSTER
ONE of the perpetual skeet questions is, "How much help does the field shot derive from his skeet shooting?" The tacts or the case are contrary to earlier ideas on the subject, and it may be interesting to look into this subject at a time when so many confusing phases are cropping up in skeet.

Keeping One Eye Master
[no value]

WILLIAM HARNDEN FOSTER
IT IS accepted without much question that the proper way to sight a shotgun at a moving mark is with both eyes open and with the vision centered on the object while the gun is being brought up into the proper line. In shooting with both eyes open, or binocular shooting, as it is called, it is absolutely essential that one eye take mastery over the other. In most cases one will, and the shooter fires from the corresponding shoulder.

Question: Though I have done quite well with my Winchester carbine on close-running deer, I don't like the feel of it. Looking about, I see Marlin is putting out a little better-looking gun. I especially like the larger forearm, larger butt on a pistol-grip stock, and a 24-in, barrel.

EVERY year more and more sportsmen realize how necessary a small outboard engine is to the full enjoyment of their chosen hobby. The handiness and general utility of the modern motor are too well-known to warrant comment here. Once you own one of these little packages of power, you are seldom satisfied to go back to oars or paddle.

Question: In a recent issue, some one wanted to know if it would be possible to put an underwater exhaust on a Johnson outboard motor. The exhaust was originally under the tank. I have been thinking about trying the same thing with mine, but the pipe from the manifold would interfere with the 360-degree steering.

The GRAYLING...Real and Bogus
Missouri's Chukars
[no value]
[no value]
RAY BERGMAN
THE name grayling always has fascinated me. For years, I read articles about this fish with great interest. As a rule, the articles didn’t tell me as much as I wished to know and so kept my interest alive. I gathered the impression from this reading that grayling were very beautiful and extremely easy to catch on a fly.

THE material for this handy fish-cleaning tool usually can be found around any fishing camp. To make it, simply rivet two beer-bottle caps to a short length of wooden handle. The bottom end of the handle is slotted to take a piece of steel from an old table knife. -A. S. Wurz, Jr., Alberta, Canada.

AUGUST is a poor fishing month in most of the country between the foothills of the Rockies and the coast of Maine. Many of the lakes and streams in this area begin to suffer from the summer heat, and the fish become listless. Of course, there are a number of exceptions, and unusual weather may bring good fishing even in August.

MARINE anglers in every corner of the globe are interested in fishing for tuna. This is possible because this species has the widest distribution of any of the large migratory fishes. Tuna don't seem to mind the colder waters, yet they are equally at home in warm, tropical currents.

WHEN fishing for striped bass with cut bait, I’ve often had trouble when the bait was soft and wouldn’t stay on the hook. I made a little sack out of mosquito netting and placed it over the bait, fastening it on with elastic bands. This worked fine, as striped bass strike at the scent of the bait and not at its appearance.

FISH are the main feature of many camper's meals. To break the monotony, and stimulate appetites when fish are served regularly, keep the catch fresh and sweet, and cook the fish in as many different ways as possible. If you do this, they will always be welcome.

Question : My two air mattresses have been used 2 weeks for 2 summers. Last summer I found that they leaked. They had me on the ground in a couple of hours. Is there any treatment that will make them hold air again? — A. P. S., New York. Answer: As your air mattresses are only some 2 years old, I believe the leaking is due to small breaks in the rubber.

I SHALL never forget the shivers that slithered up and down my youthful spine when anyone mentioned a bloodhound. The very word suggested dire and dreadful things. Before I was fourteen, I had read “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” not once but many times, and Eliza crossing the ice was my idea of the ultimate in feminine heroism.
