- Additional Information
DetailsReprinted from the third edition of 1864, which includes a memoir of the author as well as a chapter on creeper fishing and several other notes by an anonymous editor. Younger was a shoe-maker from St Boswells on Tweed. His salmon patterns pre-date those of Scrope (1843), and represent the classic old Tweed flies. Also included in this edition, as a preface, is Arthur Ransome's biographical note on Younger taken from Ransome's 1959 book, Mainly About Fishing.
