Excerpt from Fly-Fishing and Fly-Making for Trout, Etc

In order to arrive at a right method in the capture of any of the fera naturœ it is unmistakably necessary to first become acquainted with the creature's personal habits. No man in his senses would go out to trap - say, beaver - knowing nothing of the tastes, faculties and general intelligence of the animal, nor would the ordinarily sensible man expect to get much sport with his gun unless he possessed at least an elementary knowledge of the game he sought. Yet this is precisely what a majority of anglers do, with regard to fish. Fishes depend exclusively on their senses for safety against the wiles of the fisherman, and yet he uses, for the most part, entirely what is provided for him in the shape of tackle, and does as he is told in the arrangement of baits, and his own comportment.
