Details

"Gives useful information on fishing in California, western Canada and the West Indies. Fishing in British Columbia and Yosemite for trout, salmon and salt water fish also black bass in Quebec." (Hampton). "Assuredly, all good fishermen should go to America before [they die], for no other Continent has such amazing resources for their entertainment in river, lake, and sea.. ..In each of these pleasant countries, going by way of the sunny West Indies, and returning by way of the icy St. Lawrence, I spent some pleasant weeks, following a carefully planned itinerary, save when the gleam of some lake or river that I had not taken into account bade me halt and put my rod together. Needless to say, the finest water, in which sport still borders on the miraculous draught, lie away at the end of the horse-trails out of reach of those who hug the railroad." Contents include: Part I, From the Solent to the Golden Gates: Days on the Carribean; New Orleans; A railroad journey. Part II, California: San Francisco; The lake of my dreams; The finest sea-fishing in the world; The Yosemite Valley and the big trees. Part III, Two Cities: A city of roses, Portland; Good-bye to the States. Part IV, Canada: The Pacific Slope; The Rockies; Cities of the Plain.
