The Dace is a lively brisk little fish, and affords much amusement in

catching him, particularly with very small flies, which he will rise at

from May to October. They like the rapid streams, along the sides of

them, and in the middle, they may be seen in shoals. The vicinity of

Richmond is a very good place to go for a day's Dace fishing with the

fly. They haunt the same places as the Roach, are taken with the same

baits, and angled for near the bottom. Hooks No. 12 or 13.
