JACKSON, John. The Practical Fly Fisher. London, George Bell & Sons, 1880.

Small 8vo. Original green cloth stamped in gilt; pp.[iv], 57, [1], [2, list of subscribers]; a very good copy with a little rubbing to the binding.
The third edition of Jackson's little book on fly ties for catching Grayling in the River Yore, largely devoted to a breakdown of effective flies by month, including colour plates for reference. Jackson's primary interest was in grayling, making this one of the less common texts that focuses on them rather than trout. A lovely copy of a scarce title.
