LOST AND RECOVERED By "Three-Six" F'rinstance, you were half a mile off shore and lost your pet reel over- board in several hundred feet of water, would you put an "ad" in the paper for its recovery, or straightway pro- vide yourself with a new one ? I had this predicament staring me in the face once. I was out fishing, for tuna and had spent a half-hour chumming" and finally had them com- ing ravenously to the surface aroun,l the launch. [ was standing Ul) with rod in one hand and baited hook in the other, ready to cast it out to the fish I considered of good size. It was necessary to be quick and careful, as every now and then an albacore would shoot out from nowhere to beat the tuna to the bait. I was at last successful in feeding my selected fish--it all happened so quickly I beas dazed for the moment. but after the shock of that vicious lunge had passed away I found my- self standing there with all that was qeft below the reel seat in my hand and gazing out upon the water. I did take a beautiful Tahoe trout, though, last summer out of Mary Lake, up in the high Sierras, with that oht reel, but this is getting a little ahead of my story. Well, there was not very much to be said by me, at least out loud, for i had as my guest a lady angler from the east, and I noticed that she had become tangled up with an albacore. The captain ordered me to sit down in the bow of the launch and keep quiet, and I noticed he was taking special pains in directing the lady's fight with her fish, which appeared 1o be putting up a long and hard scrap. Eventually, the captain, with a r~dghty shout, buried the gaff, and, turning to me said: "Now I am going after your old reel, and if I get it you have the lady to thank for the skill she display- ed in handling her fish." The captain had taken il~ the whole situation at a glance, noticed we each had hooked on at the san,e time, that my tuna had Crossed her line, and the only hope of saving the tackle was for the abacore to make a half turn about my line, and from the way that fish fought a little later the captain felt this had hat)pened; hence the pains he took to get that fish up to gaff. In some way the line became twisted a few times arounA the wire leader and the captain saw this when her fish first came within sight. After what seemed an age in bring- ing in my line the tip and reel appear- ed, and I have often woudere'3 just what took place down there under the surface, and bow long before my tuna CATALINA ISLAND BRANCH PACIFIC-SOUTHWEST , sTRUST& BANK C.
