Side 353 - I mean, with inclinations to it, though both may be heightened by discourse and practice : but he that hopes to be a good angler, must not only bring an inquiring, searching, observing wit, but he must bring a large measure of hope and patience, and a love and propensity to the art itself; but having once got and practised it, then doubt not but Angling will prove to be so pleasant that it will prove to be, like virtue, a reward to itself.
Side 292 - To frame the little animal, provide All the gay hues that wait on female pride : Let Nature guide thee ; sometimes golden wire The shining bellies of the fly require ; The peacock's plumes thy tackle must not fail, Nor the dear purchase of the sable's tail. Each gaudy hird some slender tribute brings, And lends the growing insect proper wings : Silks of all colours must their aid impart, And every fur promote the fisher's art.
Side 142 - Here hills and vales, the woodland and the plain, Here earth and water seem to strive again ; Not chaos-like together crush'd and bruis'd, But, as the world, harmoniously confus'd : Where order in variety we see, And where, though all things differ, all agree.
Side 277 - Navaho life, and there is always a right way and a wrong way to do everything.
Side 373 - A man's a fool who strives by force or skill To stem the torrent of a woman's will ; For if she will, she will, you may depend on't, And if she won't, she won't — and there's an end on't.
Side 322 - ... and in bringing up the mud and clay from their tube-like holes, pile it as a chimney at the entrance. These species at particular times place a plug of clay in the orifice of the chimney and seal themselves in for a certain length of time. Still others reside in the drains and mud of the rice fields and plantations of the south, and sometimes burrow through the embankments allowing the water to flood the region.
Side 147 - Ireland, mottled in a most singular way, — their colour being like that of the tortoise ; the nature of the water, exposure to the light, and probably the kind of food, produce these effects. I think it possible, when trout feed much on hard substances, such as larvae and their cases, and the ova of other fish, they have more red spots, and redder fins. This is the case with the gillaroo and the char, who feed on analogous substances : and the trout, that have similar habits, might be expected...
Side 62 - Le salmoïde a une petite élévation sur le nez ; l'ouverture de la bouche fort large ; la mâchoire inférieure un peu plus longue que la supérieure ; l'une et l'autre garnies d'une grande quantité de dents très-menues ; la langue charnue ; le palais hérissé de petites dents que l'on voit disposées sur deux rangées et sur une plaque triangulaire ; le gosier situé au dessus et au dessous de deux autres plaques également hérissées ; l'œil grand ; les côtés de la tête, revêtus de petites...
Side 440 - THEY are taken with a hook and line, but without any bait. Two people are in a little canoe, one sitting in the stern to steer, and the other near the bow, having a rod ten or twelve feet in length, to one end of which is tied a strong line, about twenty inches in length, to which is fastened three large hooks, back to back.
Side 377 - I fear it will be almost deemed heresy to place this fish (black bass) on a par with the trout; at least, some such idea I had when I first heard the two compared; but I am bold, and will go further. I consider he is the superior of the two, for he is equally good as an article of food, and much stronger, and untiring in his efforts to escape when hooked.
