Column 4) manship to use a thirty-nine-thread line on these larger fish (over 300 pounds), and put some restriction on the detachable gaff. In other words, depend on the angler killing the fish with rod and reel, instead of the boat- man with a big gaff attached to 50 or 100 feet of half-inch rope. I think no one will question the statement that these fish have been seen in local waters that were twice the weight of our largest game fish. ==================================================================================================================================================== Why should not the angler be allowed " to use a larger line on a 700-pound N swordfish than what he uses for a Your tour of California Should Include ;! i 200-pound tuna, or a 300-pound mar- a Visit to ...... lin ? ~3 Wn i This is a wnderful fish t classify' on account of the wide range in their weight, and also the fact that the boatman seeing the fish before put- MILE HIGH ~ ting out the bait can give a fairly fl close estimate of what the fish will il Scenic Trip Worth While r 9~ From the Heart of Los Angeles through [[ Beautiful Pasadena and Altadena [: Jl ii YE ALPINE TAVERN Excellent Accomodations at ,Reasonable Rates Secure Illustrated Folders at Information Bureaus [i h PACIFIC ELECTRIC RAILW'AY o , s,,T.T. o Lo. ,,.,..

Jump, who could kill a fish of this size on this tackle, and we may have more members that can do the same. The second class would be for fish from 200 to 300 pounds on twenty- four-thread line.
