DIBBING FOR TROUT. A mode of angling resorted to in those rivers that are much overhung with trees, and where it is totally impossible to throw the fly. A dibbing rod should be rather stiff, and about eighteen feet in length, with a line of strength sufficient to bring a heavy fish to land without the assistance of a net or gaff. This mode of fishing is successful for trout and chub.
