This is so in point of size alone. On the town’s one thousand and seventy-five acres some eighteen thousand people live — thus making the little town by the sea one of the more important of the State. Winthrop, is a beautiful town. Its location between the Atlantic Ocean on the East and Boston Harbor on the West is alone enough to establish the fact. Even more, Winthrop is a town of gentle hills which, although now built over with about 4, houses, gives almost every window a wide prospect over miles of ocean, marsh and a city just far enough away to be remote and yet near enough to be conveniently reached within a half-hour or so. Probably one of the greatest factors concerned in the production of Winthrop’s charms are the many elms and maples lining her 36 miles of streets and shading most of her homes and all her public buildings. There are wealthier towns in the Commonwealth than Winthrop but few more financially fortunate. By many years of self-sacrificing service by public-spirited citizens who have served the town largely without pay, the town is practically without debt; nearly all the streets are paved and have sidewalks while the municipal establishments, schools, library, town hall, fire houses and all the rest are paid for in full.

South Bend Bait Co., South Bend, Ind., began its reelmaking by acquiring the rights to an antibacklash wire bail, which was used on many of their reels into the s. Over the years, the company made what seems like an infinite variety of reels, but only the very earliest models have significant collector value.
Partly cloudy with warmth from the sun made for a great day to be out on the UDR. It was a mixed bag for our boat today with a nice 18 inch ‘bow, three browns up to 15 inches and a few smallmouth bass. This fish was one of three wild trout that Robert caught this afternoon! Welcome back to the Big D – Rich Toohey! Here’s Rich with a chunky 15 inch river smallmouth bass caught late in the trip north of Hollister’s.
Bluebird skies, gin clear water, sunny and dry – and nobody else out on the river. Plenty of bass with a double limit and a huge bass on a Senko midway through our river adventure was icing on the cake! Bill Conley nailed this hawg a wee bit south of Masthope Rapids on this afternoon’s float trip.
Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issue , Doug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company’s engineering innovations. But two of Landau’s examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues.

I hope you will find this site a “window” to our collective angling past, and that you share my interest in the history of fishing, the equipment available in different eras, and the techniques used by those who fly or coarse fished the waters in prior centuries. Historic Angling Enterprises is dedicated to furthering a better understanding the history of fly fishing and coarse bait fishing.
To that end this site will be constantly modified as historical materials are added over the coming weeks and months. To that end I go forth, alone and also with other kindred spirits, to the mountains, forests and other wild places, fully clothed and equipped for an earlier era, down to the last detail, including the food I intend to consume. It is or should be a challenging learning experience and a great deal of fun.
And when one adds the element of fishing to the reenactment equation, it gives a one a very good education about what anglers living and fishing several centuries ago encountered in their pursuit of our finned adversaries. You will find, I believe, that the colonial angler, whether it be George Washington or some nameless urchin living with parents along a creek on the frontier; or the mountain man of the next century following in the footsteps of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, had virtually the same motivation and used much the same approach as we do today.

Spincasting This is the preferred set-up for the inexperienced angler. Spincasting outfits are excellent in teaching the beginning angler and children the mechanics of casting. Casting is a simple task, the angler presses and holds down a button on the rear of the reel, this disengages the line pick-up pin, upon the forward cast the line comes off the spool. Once the crank handle is turned the pick-up pin is engaged retrieving the line on the spool. Spincast reels have low gear ratios as a result of the size of the spool, which makes it difficult to fish lures that require a fast retrieve such as: For rods buy fiberglass their durable will hold up from abuse.
The design was of a fixed spool reel mounted below the fishing rod with a mechanical pick-up wire bail used to retrieve the fishing line. The anti reverse feature prevents the crank handle from rotating while fighting a fish allowing the angler to use the drag. In casting a spinning reel the angler opens the bail, grasping the line with the forefinger, then using a backward snap of the rod followed by a forward cast, the line is drawn off the fixed non rotating spool and not against a rotating spool such as a bait casting reel.
Because of this lighter lures can be used where the weight of the lure does not have to pull against a rotating spool. Spinning rods have large fishing line guides to minimize line friction upon casting. Spinning outfits operate best using fairly light weight limp flexible monofilament fishing lines and are used for bluegills, crappies, perch and walleyes.

Questions about Antique Reels: Brands and Companies Q1: Many of the questions received about older reels concern American level winding baitcasting reels mass-produced from the s to the s. The vast majority of the mass-produced baitcasting reels and fly reels, too, for that matter made by the major tackle companies from the s to the s can still be found easily at flea markets and yard sales.
Though often overshadowed by fishing lures and reels, fishing rods are the source of the word “angler,” so they deserve our ’s because in medieval England, fishing rods were known as “angles.” Back then, before fiberglass and graphite composites, fishing rods were often made of light, tough, and pliable bamboo or ash, with maple butts and grips of cork.
Looking at areas within the Calcasieu Estuary I noted an imagery date of May 18th, When using Google Earth the imagery date appears in the lower left hand corner of the image. Previously the most recent imagery I was finding of hte Louisiana coast on Google earth was While it’s a little older than the new imagery available on Google Earth, I do find it to be of a higher resolution than what is available on Google Earth.
Google Earth however is a little easier to use. Generally I’ll use Google Earth to look for areas I want to fish, or other features, then if I want a closer look than what the imagery on Google Earth can provide, I’ll use Lacoast.
