Besides technique problems, care of the eyes is emphasized. John Canova of Belleayre Mt., New York, writes that ,t\vo pairs of glasses are necessary. Dark g l a s s e s should be worn at mid-day and lighter amber are better for the late afternoon flat light. He also points out the'importance of high quality glasses. To add- to this, one of the most painful and unnecessary injuries the ski patrolman encounters is. snow blindness. ;. This writer.': 'is Of the opinion that over-use of sun glasses is almost as bad as under-use. ' . ' · · ; But snow blindness,Oike sunburn, is often undetected in time to prevent 1 serious damage. Basic precautions, therefore, are a must. .-...

There's a hew deal coming for pier fishermen, and its promises are. great. Artificial fishing reefs off the end of the piers will bring a new kind of fishing. Seal'Beach and Huntington Beach are among the next piers to benefit from this program of the Wildlife Conservation Board.. Bids have been opened and the state board is entering into a contract with M D Shipping of Santa Monica for construction of the reefs, scheduled to begin in the spring in order to interfere as little as possible with sport- fishing boat operations. Pier fishers should be able to notice the results before the summer is over. The horseshoe-shaped reef -- Seal Beach will get 4,185 tons of rock--will nurture food and provide a hiding place for small forage fish, which in turn will attract - larger game fish'. At least 12 feet below the surface, the rocks "will riot interfere with navigation. The reef will be close enough to' the pier so fishermen can cast close to the rocks. ' " : ·'. - - . The benefits of the.reef already have been established. The rocks of the oil' islands already have become great bass fishing grounds, 1 arid the rocks of the Marina jetties also have helped attract bass and other fish. An artificial reef 'already built at ! the Imperial Beach pier is proving its value. Species of fish not common to the sandy bottom areas are being taken. The projects, funded through the Parks and Recreation Bond Act'of 1964, include San Clemente, Oceanside, Herrhosa Beach.-Venice and Manhattan Beach piers also. ;· KTTfCWERSACK'lNTb"Y.0«SWiNdl ~WIHi'«)«h«lpef.AmcW ' Pqlmir 1 ! new, illuitrattd booklif, *!·· Shod ond Falway Woed«.'

A check down the beach found Belmont Pier anglers taking bonito; some bonito on the San Gabriel River bridge; some fairly good perch fishing along.the strand; : and some sporadic corbina catches, topped by one 5 : pounder at Belmont Shore. ' Belmont Pier is'suffering somewhat from the pile 'driving and 1 heavy'construction work on the new pier alongside, but with halibut^ close in all along the East Long Beach and Seal Beach shore, both those piers should be producing well soon, nonetheless. A.Tuesday night check for grunion along Belmont Shbfe'was disappointing, although not a complete blank. One,party had a few. dozen fish in the bottom of their ·'bucket/ but many .of the sca'ttered hunters--mostly joyous .young couples--found none: If you feel hardy, have a try forjhe funny little finnies at midnight tonight Or'a haif-hour later in the wee hours of Saturday morning. We found things better last weekend among the clam hunters--in fact, too good. This digger took three limits 'of Pismos in three days, conscientiously burying the ones under 4'/4 inches and stopping at 10 clams. But we saw lots of illegal clams being'taken, mostly by youngsters who didn't know any better, and we saw others with far more than their limits. The clams were too easy to get in a number of places along the Southland shore, and the fishery took quite rf beating. Game wardens reported that clam diggers unable to resist breaking the law were the most numerous among game law violators last month. There were 94- arrests of clam, diggers among 289 citations. That exceeded even the arrests for fishing without a license (a license is required for clams, too). The offenders paid a total of $8^298 in fines, and if you figure that out, you'll see you're running the risk of a healthy penalty for that unlawful chowder. SKIN DIVERS AND SCUBA DIVERS will switch their attention from spiny lobsters to abalones Wednesday. The abaior.e season opens as the lobster season comes to an end until Oct. 5. Fishing hours for abalone are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset, and the limit is five of any or all species. A license is required.
