Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta With the British ainia' (1) Th� Main Street in Jeritsho after its occupation by Britii^ forces. (2) Prisoners on New Street, Bagdad, (3) A general Titw of Hebron-the wooded hill is the ancient stronghold of David. (4) Egyptian labor corps Iwat-men unloading stores from surf boats at the wharf at Jaifa. (5)' The native market in the main street of Hebron. (6) A Tnrldih observation post at Bamadle. (7) The entrance' to the t, whloU. for the reasonably skilful fl�herm�n may be relied upon to yield dally baakets of from three to six dozen spacklod beauties, running all the way from % of a pound fo two pounds In wolght, and withal full of nglit and as same fish as ran be found anyv.-here In the wnrld. ThDto arc many canintng Inns where the best of accominoildtlon can be secured, and the ardent niiherraan BO mlBtak� If he start out from Victoria by train and drop off at any station at which he spies an hotel. Should be desire a somewhat more elaborate outing with an even greater diverelty of sport, let him lake an automobile and strike out boWly. The simplest of camp equipment will suffice for such a trip during the summer time, and no difBculty will be experienced in obtaining frequent and ample supplies of gasoline. Thus equipped our sportsman may easily penetrate to lakes and atreama which are veritably an angler's' paradise. He will, however, find that on some, If not most of the lakes, flying with a fly will be practically barren of results. Hera he will need to bring a small spoon or an artificial minnow Into play, and he will be rewarded with fish running aa high In weight as three or eren four pounds, monsters, which, If he he fishing for the, sport with light tackle, win tax his skill and reeource to ths utmost ere he Is able to slip the not under thora. From this it ,1s but a step to the last and crowning stage of trout Tsh-lug on the Island. This nonslHts In the following up of some few of the mountain streams, rivers would really be a better word to use, which empty on the west coast of the Island and which are comparatively dllB-cuU of access, but in which cavort the patriarchs of the trout family, lordly llsh which hav� been known to run as high as 14 pounds in weight (and which are none the le�s as full iMi. >ImM. AMi aparUai. �mlltlsi aa Uia wy gamest of tlielr mailer brethren. Here maj the true fliheriaan taste the sweetMt of all earthly joya, that of landlns a really big ftah after a battle royal of perlMpii a couple of hours duration, In tlie �wlrling, Icy waters of a rapid and difficult stream. This experience Is not, howerer, for the many, unless one oan cast a long line, light as tMetledown and' with unerring accuracy, never a rise win one secure from the big ones. Let ua suppose that our sportsman makes Victoria his starting point. I^eavlng the capital, he will soon cotne to some famous grilse water.where large baskets' are caught alqioat every day In the proper season, The view of this water, kno^rn ag, the Saanlch Arm, wh^ch is here shown, was taken from the roadway, several hundred foet above the water level. It is really a land-locked arm of the sea, and provides splendid sport for hundreds of fishermen from Victoria, .Tust a little further along one roachee anot.her flhe strepch of roI-mon and grilse water known as Tod Inlet, and here also excellent spprt Is to he had for the asking. I had, and that too In the midst oJ �cenery which will appeal to anyone with even the most rudimentary love of the bea'utles ot nature. Bight miles further up the line Cowichan Is reached, and hero will be found one of the most tamoua trout strearffc on the Island. This may' be moat conveniently flshe* from the town of Duncaji, where the hotel accommodation is ot the best! From thle centre also a run of aoi houra duration will take the angler to Cowichan Lake, where he is e�r � tain to And ample opportunity of tesUng his skill to the uttermost,j Sxoallent fishing may also be had In numberless small streams In tbla| neigbhorhood, still making Duncan one's headquarters. The next jump will bo one of rather greater magnitude, to Nanalmo, In fact, lust oven thirty miles, though the angler whp has chosen to make the trip by car, will find plenty of small streams loccurrlug In the intervening section which will v/oll repay his attention, Having arrived at Nanalmo, the Nitnalnjo Lakeij will first claim notice. They are' not exactly easy olj aocesa, lying as they do some eight miles from the town, but there Is iv ITPod road leading to them, though not as yet In a flt state for motoring,' As will be seeri from the accompanying view of a morning's catch on this lake, there Is no lack ot llsh, and that,, tu". of goodly size. Whllo^ut tlie Vanalmo Lakes a tramp through the woods of an hours duration will bring one to IScho Tjake, a sheet of ifater wUeh Is alaa well stocked in v/Ith tBagnlflcemt fish, which will eniply reward, the angler for bis pains''lu arriving thereat." Returning to Nanalmo Itself, the MUlstrcam, which runs right through the tow)), holds many a fine trout, Bteelhead- having frequently been caught here running up to S and 9 pounds In weltfit I. ;Tli:�'kill surrounding the coal cKy � alio p��� vides splendid sport In tbt,||hiff� of trolling for salmon tor those whoi like this branch ot the angUn ar�^ and, indeed, he who wiH>ladul|* tat  bit of sea flshing, will flatf UnHWil waU suited ber�.-"Speat ptaaer.'* ;
