Grasshoppers for Bait
The grasshopper is good bait, especially for surface feeding fish. Perhaps no other bait will cause a lazy old trout to rise so quickly from the depths as will a lively, kicking grasshopper, and it is an almost irresistible bait for these fish, even during the hot summer months when the water is clear and the fish cannot be lured in any other way. If there is a trout there, a live grasshopper cast lightly out onto the pool is almost sure to be his undoing. The hook should be entered at the joint just behind the 'hopper's head and.run lengthwise of the body. To carry this bait a "hopper coop* is the proper thing.
