The decora- tion of the two club bttihlings adtled much festive color to that side of Av- alon bay. tt was very picturesque to watch the movements of the many yachts, cruisers and speed-boats from the mainland. The presence of pala- tial yachts Casiana, Goodwill, etc., gave the Descanso bay a distinguished and aristocratic setting. Through it all the weather was ideal, the people happy, gober and contentctt." Hiding Under the Spoon One of the most interesting fish- ing stories of the week is the one told by Thomas Mcl). Potter, on his friend, Charles V. Barton. It's a long story; but we'll et~t it short. Barton was fighting a fish near Seal. Rocks. "It's a yellowtail!" exclaimed this vet- eran angler. "Just fancy, the first of the season !" Then there was a lull in the battle. Very carefully Angler ~Barton operated his reel. "Don't feel it pnll any more, Tom," said the rodman in a dejected tone of voice. "All right; reel in! Better luck next time," said Mr. Potter, very sympath- etically. Tont's great on sympathy. "No, it's on the hook yet," interrupt- ed Captain Harry Nichols. "Its a bar- racutta." "'A barracuda! I don't see it," replied Barton, as he held his rod to one side and peered into the blue water. "Why, there it is f" volunteered Mr. Potter, who is known as the t'resident of the Catalina Three-Six Club, "and its hiding under that Wilson spoon yotl are nsing for bait." Curtain. Anchor Story Ended They were talking about swordfish at the Tuna Club Friday night, and one of the anglers, in a burst of en- thusiasm, exclaimed: "Did I ever tell you ~about the big swordfish that swam up to the .... , bit thru a 3-4 inch chain, and carried off my eighty pound anchor ?" "No wonder you don't get any fish this season," interrupted the man in the corner. "A fish won't swallow- more than one anchor." That ended the story. Good night!
