We have spoken of, under the name of each fish. We may mention as a fact, that we have seen large numbers of roach and dace pulled out of the Thames with a little bit of white kid glove on the hook instead of a fly. The angler was " fly-fishing," that is, throwing his line as though he had a fly on the hook, when the fish bit at every two or three throws, and he pulled out more than a hundred in a very short time. Try for yourself.
