Ii you haven't forgotten all the tricks of kite flying you learned as a youngster, yon might consider t a k i n g a kite »long when you go fishing. Kite fishing isn't p a r t i c u l a r l y new. As a matter of f a c t , Chinese used airborne f i s h i n g rigs long before the dawn of western civilization, and adventurous anglers throughout the world have kept the sport alive A n u m b e r of charter boal skippers based in Florida use * kite to catch s a i l f i s h and m a r l i n because it presents the bait better and keeps it f a r t h e r Rwav from the boat. However most of the real kite f i s h i n g addicts seem to be concentrated along the Eastern sealoard where s u r f f i s h e r m e n cast for bluefish and stripers. K i l e f i s h i n g is really quite simple. It requires a good kite constructed of waterproof fabric and sturdy supports. You'll also need a sturdy r o d , a large capacity reel, some sinkers and A lure or baited hook. O n e school o f thought suggests that the kite is honked directly to the fishing line. Send the kite aloft in an offshore breeze letting out about 200 feet of tine (or whatever seems suitable for your particular situa- t i o n ) . Then snap on a w e i g h t and » drop line which is attached to a lure. QUITE A CHAI.I.KNGR With the bail skipping along en top of the water or r u n n i n g just beneath the s u r f a c e , you can gradually let out line until von reach a place where the fish are feeding. Landing a fish with a kite presents quite a challenge because you are fighting both the- fish and kite m the same time. However, the pull of the kite is sufficient to set the hook the instant there ts a strike, and (he continued tension doesn't allow the fish to get any slack and shake the hook loose. Another kite fishing technique for big game fish entails the life of two lines. You use one line to fly the kite, and attach a fishing" line to the kite line with a clothes pin. When yoi get a s t r i k e , the line pulls awaj from the clothes pin. the kite flies Irce and you fight your c a t c h in the conventiona manner. This latter type of kite fishing Is particularly effective for sail fish or marh'n because a certain amount of slack line following the strike Is necessary to pro perly set the book.

F o r e x a m p !e, two common problems that develop with age and use are twist and curl. While both can be quite bothersome, they caii also be corrected quite easily. Curl describe.* the predicament of yoiir line coming off the spool like a spring. You can eliminate curl with a chamois cloth. First remove the line from the reel in an area where it will not tangle. Dampen the chamois cloth ;md fold it over. Place your line in the fold and apply n little , resstire with your finger; Then, keeping t h a t prossui applied, simply wind the lin back onto the reel. Curl usually results f r o m d tor Uon of the molecula structure of Hie line. Fo example, when you keep yen rods and reels in the trunk i back seat of the car. they ai in n magnetic field create when your tires heat up as yo go down the highway. To avoi c u r l , remove your reels froi the rods. Then put the ree in a cloth bag and keep then oil the front seat of the ca with you. The magnetic fie ' i s much weaker there.
