They Shoot Canoes, Dont They?
All You Ever Wanted to Know About Live Bait but Were Afraid to AskSurprisingly, many anglers are ashamed to admit that they fish with live bait. You'll run into one of these so-called purists on a trout stream and ask him what he's using. He'll say, "A Number thirty-two Royal Coachman on a three-ounce leader." Then he'll get a bite, snap his line out of the water, and there will be a worm on his hook. "That's the problem with these tiny flies," he'll say. "You keep catching worms with them."The truth is that live-bait fishing has a long and noble history.
