Sometimes it is necessary to preserve the bait; brine is used in country districts, but spirits of wine or strong gin will answer the purpose best, if they can be nicely laid flat, and the air kept from them. Mr Pennell suggests that they might be preserved in sardine air tight cases, and sold at the tackle-shops.

Pike, may be caught in almost any weather w hen a breeze is blowing, from June to the end of January; and the river haunts of the pike generally are under the shade of the water-lily leaves, between the opening of the bulrushes, and generally opposite to the deeper waters, where its prey abounds, or where the eddy is likely to carry its food. In winter it prefers the backwaters and eddies, and in summer I have watched them just outside the run of the streams.
