A phenomenal catch was made by three launches manned by Italian fishermen on Monday, states the Wellington "Post." Over 1000 large fish were taken on lines. Mostly they were hapuka, but there were also a number of hake and specimens of other varieties. The catch was made in Cook Strait, and the largeness of the haul is attributed to the remarkably calm weather, which enabled the launches to get right on to the best grounds. Generally it is too rough for the fishermen to make a long stay in this part/so very large catches are not often made. In this case the value of the haul to the fishermen will be about £(30 per boat. There are four partners in each boat, so each man .will make a very good cheque and have earned it, too, for fishing in the Strait is a dangerous business.

The Rakaia River was reported to be clear to-day, but all the other rivers were dirty.
