Louis Rhead Putting Worms on a Hook

Louis Rhead Putting Worms on a Hook

This Louis Rhead Putting Worms on a Hook Illustration invokes in many a special feeling or time. A time when we ourselves were children or when we passed on to another the love of angling. Through the decades Mr. Rhead through works illustrated not only a passion and love for his gift of drawing with a pen but he also speaks through one in his many stories. His love of angling, for nature and for children are evident throughout his works. His works including the manufacturing and creation of fly and bait casting lures included in these creations.

The complete article full page article is accompanied by short poem that speaks to this by J.W Foley. The ad was run in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle Sun on March 26, 1911.

Henry Blake’s father is just like his chum,
And when he goes fishing he lets Henry come,
He fixes two seats on the bank of the brook,
And shows Henry how to put worms on a hook,
And sometimes he laughs in the jolliest way,
At some little thing he hears Henry say,
And dips up a drink in his hat as you do,
When only just boys go a fishing with you.
J.W. Foley

Louis Rhead Fishing From Dreamland Pier

Louis Rhead Fishing From Dreamland Pier

This News article, Louis Rhead Fishing From Dreamland Pier comes from the Brooklyn Star Circa 1908. We get a chance to see Louis Rhead’s art as well as his Penmanship. I think we as lure collectors forget that sometimes he just wasn’t the fly rod lure maker extraordinaire, but that works of art can be read and viewed in paper format.

While the Pier name may be specified by Rhead, for anyone who lives remotely close to any shoreline or any beach this invokes a previous memory. Whether we got to fish the pier or view the pier from a near by restaurant or simply as our families car has driven by, this scene plays out myriad ways.

Louis Rhead Gamy Black Bass

The illustration by Louis Rhead Gamy Black Bass was part of a feature from the Brooklyn daily Feature on June 21, 1908. The Title of Gamy Black Bass How it is Caught with Bait and Fly, How and Where uses Rhead’s masterful use of illustrations to give the reader a visual of the different stages in the process.

From Left to right they are:

A lively Chase, showing the fisherman wade through waist high waters to peruse the black bass on his line.

Bait Trolling at the Thousand Islands, Showing a ores-man Paddling through the river while his passenger troll off to the right side.

Fast to a Big One, We see the Fisherman catch in one hand, landing net in the other ready to land his catch.

One that Got away, Depicting the moment the line breaks in mid fight.

Fly Fishing at Belgrade Maine, Depicting a Fisherman Fly fishing out of the front of the Canoe.

The last being the One that was Caught, Showing a Fisherman tucking away his catch into his creel.

Brook Trout Baptism

Brook Trout Baptism

Here in the Brook Trout Baptism, out of the book Speckled Brook Trout with Illustrations by famed artist and fisherman Louis Rhead. The book was printed in 1902 and is filled with some great illustrations and even writings by lure maker, fisherman and outdoor enthusiast W.C Harris.

Baptism of the Brook Trout

I am Salmo Fontinalis,
To the sparkling fountian born,
And my home where is Oxalis,
Heather bell and rose adorn,
The Crystal basin in the dell,
Undine the wood-nymph knows it well,
That is where I love to dwell,

There was I baptized and christened,
Neath the sombre isles of oak,
Mute the cascade paused and listened,
Never a word the brooklet spoke,
Bobolink was witness then,
Likewise Ousel, Linnet, Wren,
And all the brownies joined amen,

Noted Oft in ancient story,
Erst from a immemorial time,
Poets, Anglers, Hermits hoary,
Confirm my vested rights sublime,
All along the mountain range,
Tis writ in mystic symbols strange,
Naught shall abrogate or change,

Thus as Salmo Fontinalis,
Recognized wide worl o’er,
In my limpid crystal palace,
Content with all I ask no more,
Leaping through the rainbow spray,
Snatching Flies the live long day,
Naught to do but live and play.
