Column 4) ed that there was only a slight differ- ence between the nine and six line, then it came to me: Why not offset this difference by cutting down the weight and strength of the rod, and hence your Three-Six Club had its in- ception. I was never afraid of the line, but had doubts about the rod. I gathered together our little band of Royal Sportsmen, Dr. C. F. Holder, L. P. Streeter, E. L. Hedderly, Gilmour Sharpe, Captain Smith Warren, and one of two others whose names escape me at the moment, and unfolded my plans. We took the old war cry "More fish and less Sport," and improved upon it, and it became "More sport and less fish," and everything was lovely up to this point. Then I im- mediately got in touch with Roy Sha- ver, who, by the way, was another one of the Royal Guard, and I said: "Can you build me eight or nine rods six feet in length, including butt and tip, and to weigh six ounces over all ?" He looked at me a moment dumbfounded --you know how Roy is--and then said: "Say, you are not going up on the hill-side and troll for goats are you ? .... No," I replied, but I have a few goats who will use the balance. I am only going to troll with one of them myself, and I want to get their rods, not their goats, as soon as possi- ble."

The Old-Tim- ers were surely slipping, some back to the light tackle, and some back to the 2x4 heavy; but the fish were there then, and it was a boat load on a~ fair day. Everyone looked to me to start the thing going, of course, and I clearly remember the first yellowtail. I brave- ly launched forth, but felt that Sugar Loaf was to be far enough away from home for a starter. As we pushed off, nay captain was inclined to be nervous. I think. I might have been trembling slightly myself; and I know the launch was--for some reason or other. Cap- tain Tad Gray pulled over to investi- A~e. MORE BUSINESS gate, and I am not sure but that he was nervous also, or, perhaps, had ReI hopes that I would be pulled overboard by a yellowtail.
