ANGLING FOR TROUT. 91 In whipping the hook on the line, the Unk is to be kept on the inside of the hook, and along it a hog's bristle, to prevent the bait from slipping down over the bend. Earth-worms of various sorts are to be procured by digging in garden ground, turning up stones or the droppings of cattle, amongst rotten thatch and in dung- hills. Gentles, again, are the maggots of flies, which, as well as the m.aggots of bees and wasps, the grubs of beetles, and the caterpillars of moths and butter- flies, may be all used as bait. The earth-worms should be of middle size, and are not so good when they have a knot near the head. They are improved as bait by keeping them without any earth, in moss wetted with milk; but this is not necessary for the brandling, a worm streaked with rings of red and yellow, found in rotten tan, leaf mould, or hog's dung.. a, the grub of the cockchafer, called by anglers the earth bob ;. b, brandling worm. It is for ground-fishing also that the pastes and roe which I have formerly mentioned are employed with success; but nothing exceeds the caddis worms, and good red earth-worms..
