(.Concluded from page nine)
of this sort than of any other kind under
the sun. You simply get the fish log run
as they say in the woods, and you get
them. It is a right certain conclusion
that you will get fish if you go in after
them, and that you will get a big share of
what fish do not get into the channel and
hide. The uncertainty is who is to have
the enthusiasm to go in after them. Not
that here is any backwardness. You go
to a mill pond draining and you may be
sure that the crowd in the water will be
plenty big enough to make the perform
ance wortn the price of admission. The
whole length of the pond you will see a
muddy mass of men, and you never saw
more fun in your life. The fellow who
would gethot in such a place would have
to behave or be doused in the mud. You
are forced to be happy when you are in
such a good natured crowd. Of course
you do not have to fish unless you want
to, and maybe if you really want some
thing to eat you can buy your fish.
Speaking of something to eat, here is
where you see eating. People come to a
thing of this sort for miles, for they want
the fish, and they also want to share in
the fun. They come a foot, in cars, in
buggies, in wagons, and they bring feed
for themselves and for their mules and
stay two or three days. The crowd is as
interesting in its civic life while the
picnic is on as is the fishing. The hetero
genous mixture of automobiles, and every
kind of vehicle parked in the woods and
lined along the road affords a study of
character, and sometimes a study of un
tangling of traffic problems. The country
fair is not in hearing distance in some
respects. The event presents a lot ot
interesting phases, and if it cannot, be
looked upon as exactly what you would
expect from a fishing tour it has some
other features, for it is romantic if not
in line with precedure.
Going fishing in the mud of the mill
pond is not the only way of fishing in the
Pinehurst holiday belt. If you are in
clined to the other practice you can go
over to Little River around Thaggard's,
or down to Drowning Creek or over to
Deep River, and fall in with some of the
folks who know where the pools are, and
who know the language of the craft, and
you can fish and lazy around, and eat an
put door dinner, and mix with the fel
lows of the order until you are sated, for
there are fish and a lot of them, and a
lot of good places and a lot of good fish
ermen in Moore County. H Pass the
sign some morning that you want to go
fishing and you will find the infection in
the air, and shortly you will pick up
some man who will go along and snow
you all the roads to the fishing holes and
how to fish,' and before you come home
you will be loaded up with enough local
history and tradition to write an inter
pstinff volume. 11 You can fish around
here in any language, and if that does
not suit, when you have caught all the
fish in the neighborhood streams you can
go down to the sounds and hire a steam
craft to go out and catch them by the
ton. HFolKS in mis wuuw;
please and get you what you want.
