Dry Fly Fishing In Theory and Practice

AU$145.00
By: HALFORD, Frederick M.
ID No.: 2706

Vinton & Co. London 1902  4th revised edn. 364p.     A classic from the champion of dry fly fishing that is much quoted by the purists. Widely recognised to be the greatest work on the subject of fly fishing published in the last century. History has not always been kind to Mr Halford, indeed there have been periods during the last one hundred years when his name and his work have been denigrated, and his reputation has been associated with an excessive purism and a narrow dogma, thought to be the product of snobbishness and an exclusive cult. These ideas have little relation to Halford's actual words or his achievement. Though he was unaware of the potential of nymph fishing in chalk streams, he nonetheless was an all round fisherman of considerable intuition and experience, and a tireless experimenter always in search of improvements, whether in flies or tackle. On the river Test in Hampshire, where so much of his pursuit of trout and grayling took place, Halford is still remembered with proper respect.. 'The historian of the dry fly….. He did for it what Stewart did for upstream fishing'  (Hills).  Complete with 18 plates and frontispiece, five of the plates are in colour.  Blue cloth with gilt title. Some foxing. Previous owners name on fly leaf.  -Very Good
