There is al enjoyment to be had in jerk- nose off a fish with tackle suit- for bringing to gaff such game ers as the world-famed tuna, and who persist in using heavy for fish weighing less than one pounds are not worthy to be ;ed as sportsmen who follow the for the pleasure to be derived SUch an exhilarating pastime. In Words, it should be considered a Crinle to use a sixteen-ounce tnd a twenty-four-thread line when for such game fighters as yel- white sea bass, albacore, boni- and Others of the sea fish family to found in Southern California wa- It would be fully as appropriate gunning after quail with a three- eption to this assertion should be made for novices who "go just to try out their hand." of the experiences of these el- fishermen are almost too ludic- to be laughed at.

For that reason the nine-thread line and nine-ounce rod are more accepta- ble than lighter tackle. Patience, skill and good tackle are absolutely essen- tial to successful sea angling. The an- gler who seeks to land his prey by bull strength and vigor is doomed to disappointment, especially When fish- ing for tuna or yellowtail.

But chances are very nmch against the an- gler when the fish starts on its first rush for a hiding place. It is then that a skillful use of the thumb brake or drag nmst be made, or the fish will be lost. After the first rush ahnost any fish may be brought to gaff by a skillful angler.
