There is also quite a good pool for three o the left and follows the shore about half a mile toward the end of the lake. A dozen or more of good bass, all small-mouthed, have been taken in this manner with artificial flies. At the junction of the east branch of the Delaware river and the Beaverkill (150 miles, from New York City), and along the first-named water to Hancock, a distance of abont twelve utiles, will be found the best black bass fly-fishing in the State of New York. Id this region there are scoreB of pools and long reaches where the black bass swarm and rise freely to the fly, particularly in the early days of the legal seaBor, which begins in this State on June 16th. The Oswego River, a few miles above the city of the same name, also furoit-hes fair fly-fishing, and the Schoykilland Delaware Rivers, about thirty miles above Philadelphia, were a few years ago excellent waters.

The show it is anticipated, will be held during the holiday season and will no doubt prove an agreeable way of putting in a week for the fancy located in the warm belt as well as calling Borne entries from this city and vicinity. A jolly row was on up at the Northwest field trials recently. One handler was enabled to lake a string of dogB up to the training grounds without paying railroad charges, by reason of the good offices of a local newspaper man who haa a great penchant for doing kind deedB for nothing. Other handlers who paid full rates, one in particular whose bill amounted to over $50 for getting his string of dogs up to Washington, were very sore at the uncalled for favoritism and much cogitation and comment was the outgrowth over the situation. ‘ Comparatively few anglers fish for black bass with the The Fox Terrier wherever introduced haB made friends, artificial fly.

From Our Bogs we glean the following: Probably quite 40 per cent of prizs-bred bitches which visit prize-bred stud dogs are unproductive, and we should say that in quite two- thirds of thoBe cases the fault lies, not with either the dogs or bitches, but with the owners.

Among tbe most dreaded enemies of the fish-culturisl are certain aquatic insects which attack baby fishes, Bometimes destroying them in great numbers Inasmuch as they are night-flyers, it is exceedingly hard to provide any effective safeguard against them, and many depredations of theirs have for a loDg time been regarded as mysterious and un- accountable, being attributed to other causes. For example, recently, at one of the southern stations of the United States Fish Commission, there was a large and constant mortality among young brook trout, and it was only after much watching and patient investigation that the trouble was traced to the so-called electric light bugs, which came at night and assailed the little fishes. This insect haa become familiar in cities only within the last few years, be- ing attracted by tbe electric lights. It is a large fly, which in the early Btagea of existence crawls about as a larva on the bottom of ponds. It is probable that the electric-light bug in the larval stage attacks small fishes, but the chief mischief it does is accom- plished after it has left the water and assumed wings. It is highly predatory, and, being able to dive, attacks the young fishes with its long, piercing proboscis, which consists of four sharp bristles held in a sheath. Its forelegs are modi- fied for grasping, 60 that it is able to oold on to the victim notwithstanding its struggles. It stabs the fish and sucks its blood, being in fact a sort of insect vampire. There is a li’tle insect known as the back-swimmer, be- cause of its habit u" swimming on its back, which does a good deal of damage to small fish, having a strong beak for nee in its attack. Every small boy has noticed this kind of bug navigating tbe surface of ponds. Much more formidable is the tiny diving beetle, which has long sickle-shaped jaws. The U S. Fish Commission has ascertained that these diving beetles come up the Potomac in Bwarms at night and slight upon the fish-rearing poods near the base of the Washington Monument. One of them will grab a young fish and hold on, while others get a grip in turn, and in the course of fifteen minutes they will literally reduce to a skeleton a baby bass two inches long, eating every particle of flesh from the bones. Fish-culturiste have much difficulty in guarding the young fishes againBt tbe numerous enemies that are always seeking to devour them. It 1b easy enough to protect little fishes from bigger ones by classifying them as to size and species in suitable ponds, but rats, which venture boldly into the water after such prey, are hard to keep off, and kingfishers and wading birds are ever on the alert to gobble the helpless fry.

Near the city of New York there areseveral fluvial waters where fly-fishing for black baas has been followed with a mod- erate deeree of success.

So you’re scoping out air compressors and feel a little overwhelmed by the choices. There is more than one well-known brand name claiming how reliable their compressors are and many of them offer very similar models. How do you choose? This is where air compressor reviews can come in quite handy. Whether you are just looking for residential use or you have a business to run, reviews can give you an up close and unbiased look at the brands and models you find in stores. These reviews can help you make a more informed choice and ultimately get the product that’s right for you.Where Do You Find Air Compressor Reviews?On the Internet. One of the best resources for air compressor reviews is the Internet. Searching for reviews on Google or Yahoo produces a number of Web sites with reviews of various types of air compressors. If you want more information on a specific air compressor brand or model, such as the le roi dresser, simply include that parameter in your search. The great thing about the Internet is that you don’t have to rely on just the product’s Web site for information. Consumers like you can also post information. So while you may need to search through more than one site to find what you need or to find a site with reliable information, it can help you get the details you need to make a good choice.Web Site Customer Reviews. Some online retailers let customers post their own ratings and reviews of the products sold on their Web site. These relatively unbiased reviews can offer helpful insight into how good, or not so good, a product is. Many customers post both the pros and cons of the product, including any problems they may have had with it. So if you want to know just how well that Husky on board belt driven compressor works after several uses, read a few air compressor reviews to reveal the truth. Depending on what products you’re looking at, you’ll more than likely find both average consumer and professional opinions. Averaging out the reviews can give you a better idea of just how useful the air compressor is.In Print Reviews. Many magazines, consumer-driven and trade, regularly review products aimed at their target audience. These air compressor reviews are sometimes quite in-depth and written with the goal of helping you make a choice between products. They may not always be as unbiased as Web site customer reviews, but can still offer product details that you may not find anywhere else, including information about replacement tanks or parts. You may even find special editions that focus a good portion of an issue on a certain product, covering all the bases. Whatever you plan to use your air compressor for – tire inflation or powering a sander –reviews found on the Internet, written by Web site customers, and in magazines may be your best guide to figuring out which brand and model will work best. Do your research and use air compressor reviews to make an informed choice.
