GRAYLING FISHING IN SOUTH-COUNTRY STREAMS. By H.A. Rolt.

1901 1st edition. Small 8vo. Ppxvi,72. B/w frontispiece of a grayling by A.W. Cooper. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt, upper board in black.

MAlthough suggesting by his title that he is dealing with the grayling in southern rivers only, and omitting any reference to bait fishing, Rolt yet treats the subject more comprehensively than did any of his predecessors, and, especially in his own selected sphere, adds considerably to our knowledge. He discusses the then prevailing grayling problems dispassionately, describes the requisite tackle, gives excellent impressions of both wet and dry fly fishing, and enriches our fly cases with patterns of flies of his own devising which have, and rightly, been adopted as standards on both North Country and South Country waters." (W. Carter Platts. Grayling Fishing). "Harry Augustus Rolt b. 5th Dec. 1853 Mitcham, Surrey d. 4th Apr.1926, Mousehole, Cornwall. In 1891 he is shown as private sec. to MP but by 1901 is a clerk in a shipping office." (Austin).
