156 pages2 hours


Originally published in 1914, “The Dry Fly and Fast Water” is a complete guide to fly fishing, with simple instructions and helpful tips from a life-long fly fisher. A charming handbook interwoven with personal anecdotes and expert insights, this vintage book will be of considerable value to both beginner and seasoned fisher alike, and it is not to be missed by collectors. Contents include: “Early Experiences”, “The Value of Observation”, “The Rise”, “Where and When to Fish”, “The Imitation of the Natural Insect”, “Some Fancies—Some Facts”, “The Point of View”, “A Few Patterns of Flies”, 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.
