Bass Fishing in Rivers
Although the preference of some anglers would certainly be for bait-casting, it is not to be understood that fly-fishing is at a discount in the autumn. The contrary is true. But the fly-caster should choose for the scene of action some well-known bass river, rather than a lake. As a general rule, with, of course, the usual exceptions necessary to prove it, fly-fishing for bass in lakes is not ordinarily a success. It is much better to select some wadable river where you can go about it in the same manner as trout fly-fishing is usually done. A canoe cruise on some good river, with bass fly-fishing as its object, in the fine weather prevailing in September and October, is a form of sport hard to equal. Since bait-casting is equally effective in either lake or river, the canoeist may, if he chooses, depend upon his bait casting rod for both "grub" and sport.
