Description


"The Fly-Fisherman's Entomology" is a complete handbook on fly fishing, first published in 1836. Dealing with everything from required equipment to the habits and habitats of fish, this volume will be of considerable utility to those looking to get into the wonderful pastime of fly fishing. Also includes chapters on technique, common problems and overcoming them, making the flies, and much more. Contents include: "A Short History of Fishing", "Observations on the trout and Grayling", "On Tackle, Etc.", "Manner of Fishing for Trout and Grayling", "Of a Selection of Insects, and their Imitations, Used in Fly Fishing", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
