Having read papers on Fly-fishing before the Gresham and Islington Angling Societies, and contributed occasional articles to the fishing periodicals, I have been persuaded by the members of those societies to publish my ideas on the subject...
The book offers practical tips on how to approach a new stream and techniques that appeal to several different kinds of fishing. The emphasis is on how to catch many different kinds of fish and it is not meant as an indepth guide to any one species.
