about 45 degrees , over the target.
At this point the line is released
by extending the forefinger.
The overhead cast is made by
snapping the rod back vertically
from the horizontal- tov an 11
o'clock position overhead and then,
utilizing the bend thus formed in
the rod, sweeping it forward and

Don't bother trying to learn other
types of casts until these two most
important ones become instinctive.
Practice gradually will make the
release of the Une and control of
the lure become second nature.
Then you will be pleasantly sur
prised to see how accurately the
lure can be made to land in the rip
ple ring of a rising trout, in the
pad-bordered lair of a big bass, or
close to rocks along the coast
where ocean game fish are feeding.

In summer when the flock Is
taking advantage of the eunugnt
and green forage of the range, the
poultry-raiser should watch ; bis
birds lust as carefully as when they
are in the noultry house. Irregular
range conditions can quickly bring
I about disease troubles in tne mock.
There are a number of ways in
which diseases are spread during
the range period. However an alert
poultryman, acting quickly to cor
rect any management fault,' can
usually prevent disastrous disease
outbreaks. 1,1 " "
Contaminated Water '
During this period one of the
I principal sources of trouble is con-
I laminated water. .Open water ves
sels, puddles, ana even taxes ara
brooks can become contaminated.
That's why -careful attention should
I be given to the water supply fur
nished for the, birds. If it is al
lowed to become unsanitary. , the
I poultry flock will be placed in
serious danger. An effort should

of clear, fresh water during the
I range season or during all sea-
I sons for that matter. 1 ;
In keeping the. water sunolv free

raisers use poultry drinkins-water

Another source of poultry dis
eases is the range site. When chicks
are moved from the brooder nouses
where chickens have not been per
mitted for at least a year, prefer
ably two years. '
MosauKoes. flies, ticks, and dung-
beetles and other insects ,cn
bring trouble to the flock. As a
precaution against disease, poul
try-raisers should take swift action
against the Insect i population.
Spraying regularly with a good in
secticide will help keep the flock
comfortable and will neis prevent
Diseases also can be transmitted
through mechanical means, such as
shoes, feed sacks, wild birds, dog,
and by contaminated feeders and
waterers being moved from one
pen to another. V
Still another source of disease is
the shipment of growing stock from
one location to another. When this
