NIGHT FISHING. Generally practised by poachers who are in some cases the lessees or takers of the rivers. The darkest night and the lowest period of flood are the most favourable to this destructive and illegal sport; and the torch or lantern is employed to attract or arrest the fish, while the poacher's gaff or spear is struck into them.
