Firearms for Fly Fishing
In the matter of shooting-irons there is no excuse for taking anything larger than a .22 of some sort on a fishing trip. "Combination" hunting and fishing trips are not usually very successful in either branch. If the fishing is to be done from a canoe a .22 repeating rifle is the thing, using either the long-rifle, the Automatic or the .22-7. But if wading is the program a single-shot pistol with barrel heavy enough to handle the long-rifle cartridge without excessive "jumping" is most practicable. The new smokeless and greaseless long-rifle cartridge should be used. This cartridge, although only a target size, will account very nicely for grouse, ducks, and the smaller furred game — if you shoot straight.
