'Sea fishing with rod and line has greatly increased in popularity in recent years, and today there are thousands of keen and enthusiastic sea anglers of both sexes throughout the country... In spite of these facts, it is fairly safe to say that to the large a majority of summer seaside visitors, the joys of what is a really delightful and health-giving sport are unknown.
