THE FLY-FISHER'S GUIDE. BY G. C. BAINBRIDGE, ESQ.*

WHAT a magical wand is a fishing rod tapering out of a window over a crowded street in a great city! It transports one in a moment from heat, dust, clamour, yells and rattling, into all the murmuring freshness of rural solitude.

"Bright volumes of vapour through Lothbury glide, And a river flows on through the vale of Cheapside."

Such a wand waves with peculiar potency in this our good city of Edinburgh. How often, when shrouded in one of those dense columns of sand that would do credit to the interior of Africa, have we ventured, with some confidence, to open our eyes, as we instinctively knew ourselves to be immediately under the window of a fishing-tackle shop-and felt, as we passed below the dangling wooden salmon, as if a shower of pellucid water were besprinkling all our dusty being. How finely and gracefully those two rods, from Mackenzie's and Maclean's, on opposite sides of the North Bridge, cut the horizon, as you advance from the Register-office to the Tron-church! They are far more effective than any mere living trees; and indeed, we have often thought it one of the many oversights of painters, that, in their pictures of town scenery, they have, as far as we recollect, never introduced those potent rods that taper away into the clear blue sky, bent down, as it were, with the weight of so many rural associations.

land. Much pleasure and much pain is now enjoyed and suffered there. The expert and skilful angler is, even now that the pen is in our hand (oh! that it were exchanged for a fifteen feet rod), gently and slowly laying on some green bank of the Tweed, a four-pounder" trout glittering with all his beautiful dies→→→→ while many hopeless aspirants are flogging the water in vain, have dropped their hook, like an anchor, beneath some unlucky stone, or fastened the end of their line, like the towing rope of an overloaded canal boat, on some immoveable and inexorable tree.
