Fish Oil

This is especially useful in the capture of the majority of the

fur tribe, and particularly the water animals.

The oil may be bought ready for use, or prepared with little trouble.

The common method consists in cutting up fish of any kind, especially

eels, into small bits, putting them in a bottle, and setting the

latter in the full exposure to the sun. It should thus be left

for about two weeks, at the end of which time a rancid oil will

have formed. A few drops of this oil will entice many animals from

surprising distances, often drawing their attention to a bait which

otherwise they might never have scented.
