Miss Parker, "How dare you stick your fish in my face."
Elmer, "I beg your pardon but you stuck your face in my fish."
Miss Parker, "I guess you don't know what they do to you up here if you catch an undersize fish."dark montreal

Elmer, "Undersize, please don't insult this animal."
Miss Parker, "Why you're liable to a fine of five hundred dollars."
Elmer, "You mean to say that I caught a fish worth five hundred dollars?"
From the movie Top Speed (1930)

silver doctorMy fishing days began in England, tempting, with maggots and bread paste, small roach, perch, bream and carp with my Father (Michael, see his WWII diary), my Grandfather (Albert) and my Uncle (Len). They were the finest kind.
Now I fish with flies for Nova Scotia's wild trout and salmon.

The four flies on this page are taken from The Tent Dwellers (Sports fishing in Nova Scotia in 1908) by Albert Bigelow Paine.

Piscator non solum piscatur......
There is more to fishing than just catching fish.
