Kelly’s Corner 149 - Bass Fishing
Jan Kelly writes a weekly column for Provincetown Magazine. Bass fishing first became popular at the time of the Civil War. Fly-fishermen noted and followed the spawning bass out of the brackish estuaries where they were fly fishing salmon. The striped bass lured them to the crashing surf and a new sport was born.
