FISHING-RODS 15 wide streams, or on lakes in open boats. In such cases, we would recommend a good double-handed rod, from sixteen to eighteen feet in length, as the best that could be made for salmon-fishing, in such kinds of water as we have just noticed. A rod of this size, and for this specific purpose, ought to have a free and equal spring in it, from the butt-end to the top. This is of vital importance in dealing with large fish, whether hooked and run in rivers or in lakes.
