Стр. 276 - To frame the little animal, provide All the gay hues that wait on female pride : Let Nature guide thee ; sometimes golden wire The shining bellies of the fly require ; The peacock's plumes thy tackle must not fail, Nor the dear purchase of the sable's tail. Each gaudy bird some slender tribute brings, And lends the growing insect proper wings : Silks of all colours must their aid impart, And every fur promote the fisher's art.
Стр. 355 - Offender shall not immediately deliver up the same, to seize and take the same from him for the Use of such Owner : Provided always, that any Person angling in the Daytime against the Provisions of this Act, from whom any Implements used by Anglers shall be taken, or by whom the same shall be delivered up as aforesaid, shall by the taking or delivering thereof be exempted from the Payment of any Damages or Penalty for such Angling.
Стр. 298 - Cherish the sullied reptile race with moss; Amid the verdant bed they twine, they toil, And from their bodies wipe their native soil.
Стр. 354 - ... and if in any such water as last mentioned, he shall, on the like conviction, forfeit and pay any sum not exceeding...
Стр. 158 - As though within her bounds they meant her to inclose; Here, when the labouring fish does at the foot arrive, And finds that by his strength he does but vainly strive, His tail takes in his mouth, + and, bending like a bow That's to full compass drawn, aloft himself doth throw; Then springing at his height, as doth a little wand That, bended end to end, and started from man's hand, Far off itself doth cast ; so does the salmon vault...
Стр. 335 - But crystal currents glide within their bounds ; The finny brood their wonted haunts forsake, Float in the sun, and skim along the lake ; With frequent leap they range the shallow streams, Their silver coats reflect the dazzling beams : Now let the fisherman his toils prepare, And arm himself with every wat'ry snare ; His hooks, his lines, peruse with careful eye, Increase his tackle, and his rod re-tie.
Стр. 279 - With yielding hand, That feels him still, yet to his furious course Gives way, you, now retiring, following now Across the stream, exhaust his idle rage : Till floating broad upon his breathless side, And to his fate abandon'd, to the shore You gaily drag your unresisting prize.
Стр. 355 - ... for taking or destroying fish which shall then be in his possession, and in case such offender shall not immediately deliver up the same, may seize and take the same from him for the use of such owner...
Стр. 258 - Nor trowl for pikes, dispeoplers of the lake. Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line : Let me, less cruel, cast the feather'd hook With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook, Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with the fur-wrought fly delude the prey.
Стр. 354 - Whosoever shall unlawfully and wilfully take or destroy Taking flsh. any fish in any water which shall run through or be in any land adjoining or belonging to the dwelling-house...
