Fig. 89.
The Grasshopper.

Grasshoppers are another good bait. Often a fish will take hold of a grasshopper when nothing else will tempt him to bite.

Every boy knows where and how to catch these long-legged inserts, but to keep them alive for any great length of time is more difficult.

How to Make a Grasshopper Box


Fig 90. 
A, the sliding door; 
B, the grasshopper hole; 
C, the air window protected by wire netting.

Take an old cigar box, make a square hole about two by three inches in the lid; cover the hole with a piece of wire netting. Make another hole just large enough to admit a finger.  Make a sliding door of a small paddle-shaped piece of wood, fastened with a screw at one end in such a manner as to allow the other end to slide over the hole (Fig. 90).  Half fill the box with green grass.
