Streater's Thought of the Week

Every weekend Dick Streater gives us his thought of the week, culled from his voluminous files on fishing and tackle history.

Streater's Thought of the Week: Bass fishing was traditionally a live bait exercise. The first artificial baits used for black bass were by Southeastern Florida indian tribes who used a "bob." A "bob" was a bone hook surrounded by deer hair, with gut or woven line and fished from a cut branch.
