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.
