Excerpt from Lake and Stream Game Fishing: A Practical Book on the Popular Fresh-Water Game Fish, the Tackle Necessary and How to Use It

In writing this book of fish, fishing, tackle and how to use it, as well as incidental remarks on equipment it is not the intention of the writer to set it up on a pinnacle as a "hollier than thou" book. Opinions on tackle and the method of using it are varied and at times wonderful. There are purists in every angle of the sport and by each method of angling the purist in that particular line will swear by the nine gods and at times swear at all other methods.

I have never allied myself to any one particular part of angling. I can have equally as much enjoyment from tossing the plug, live bait or feathery fly. As long as it is fishing in a sportsman-like manner with line, rod and reel and playing the fish until it comes up to the net or gaff, white-side up, I consider the game true sport and worthy of just consideration.

As to the methods of angling and the handling of tackle advocated herein, they are the methods that I have found to be successful from actual experiences of my own or from the experiences of other fishermen with whom I have cast and whipped lake and stream.
