There was really nothing for me to do, but I felt I must register action before the crowd--meaning the said Captain Gray, so I began on the reel handle, slowly and carefully, so as not to injure it, and in the meantime the yellowtail was gradually coming up; but whether to get a look at me or to give the new rod the once over, I cannot say; but =============================================================================================================================== Captain Gray turned away with a dis- Your tour of California Should Include .:~'" i] gusted look, like he wanted his money back.

Walker had a new line he wanted me to put on; but I prom- ised him I was not going to lose any more fish, and I did not. There was a huge school of fish there that day, none going much over twenty pounds, and I was pretty busy for the rest of the morning, as was likewise Tad Gray.

It was the last time I ever went out yellowtail fishing, but then there has scarcely ever been a yellowtail seen or heard about the Island since that mem- orable day.
