PREFACE. the writer of this very functional treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing wants in actual fact that it can be of use to all who had it. He doesn't fake to have written whatever new, yet to have tried to place what he has to claim in as readable a sort as attainable. every little thing within the method of the background and conduct of fish has been studiously shunned, and technicalities were used as sparingly as attainable. The writing of this e-book has afforded him excitement in his rest moments, and that excitement will be a lot elevated if he knew that the perusal of it can create any bond of sympathy among himself and the angling neighborhood typically. This part is interleaved with clean shects for the readers notes. the writer desire not often say that any feedback addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with attention in a destiny variation. we don't fake to put in writing or magnify upon a brand new topic. a lot has been acknowledged and written-and good acknowledged and written too at the artwork of fishing yet loch-fishing has been fairly seemed upon as a second-rate functionality, and to dispel this concept is likely one of the gadgets for which this current treatise has been written. a ways be it from us to claim whatever opposed to fishing, lawfully practised in any shape yet many pent up in our huge cities will endure us out whilst me say that, most commonly, a days loch-fishing is the best.
