Adam & Charles Black London, 1970 Revised and reset. 8vo, Illust, 272pp, D/J,   Frank Sawyer is well known as the keeper on a famous stretch of the Wiltshire Avon. He is also author, naturalist, broadcaster. The result of forty years' close observation and constant practice is set out here in the most thorough, informative, and attractive manner."  This key book in the evolution of chalkstream flyfishing for trout and grayling also includes a chapter on "Lesser Quarry," on nymph fishing for chub, dace and roach; on "Experiments With Salmon"; and on "Still Waters"; and, of course, on river keeping. The second edition was completely revised and rewritten to take into account a further ten years' observation and practice with the upstream nymph. It is a great deal longer and also includes chapters on Chew and Blagdon, on fishing in Cornwall, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Bavaria.    P/C.  Previous owners stamp. -Fine
