No. 23 of limited deluxe edition of 55. The scarce first edition was published in 1914. Written by an amateur, this is "the most notable book to date on the subject since Kelson. Indispensable to the learner; his flies are distinguished by their beauty and finish and his descriptions are lucid." (Robb, Notable Angling Literature, 1947).
