To catch bullheads, all you need is a long cane rod; a line about the same length, and a light linen line will answer as well as any other; a No. 4 hook, preferably one with a long shank, as it renders extraction easier; and a small lead sinker about ten inches above the hook. If you like you may also use a cork float to tell you when the fish is biting. You can use only one pole, or two or three, as you like for they are "set" in rests provided on the bank. After setting the rods you can light up and take things easy until a cork goes out of sight, then haul in your fish. You needn't be afraid of hurting him and he will try his best to hurt you while you are removing the hook, so look out for his spines on the pectoral fins.
