By Dan Beard

Katydids are very difficult to obtain in quantity sufficient for use as bait, on account of their habits of living in trees. Once, when I was fishing among the Thousand Islands, in the St. Lawrence River, I became weary of trolling for big muskallonge that would not bite, and made the guide put me "here upon a little rocky island, covered with small shrubbery and stunted trees. These I found to be full of great, green, handsome katydids. I soon filled my handkerchief with them, and in less than one hour's time caught a good string of fish of assorted kinds, but principally fine bass.

Among other things, I caught the largest fresh-water eel I've ever seen; but as I was dressed in summer- resort fishing clothes, and feared the effects of eel slime on my trousers, I cut the eel loose, allowing him to depart in peace with my hook in his mouth.
