THE ART AND CRAFT OF LOCH FISHING. By H.P. Henzell.

1937 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp217. Two colour plates of flies, b/w photographs, bibliography. Olive green cloth.

A comprehensive work on Scottish loch fishing with an emphasis on imitating the natural fly. "...an attempt is made to devise a system of fishing a loch with imitationsof the insects on which trout feed instead of depending on the 'attractor' type of lure." (Where To Fish 1939). "Henzell... is a Newcastle businessman, very enthusiastic about loch fishing in which he specializes, rather conceited, but a nice chap. He does not, of course, attempt to solve the real problem in loch fishing which to me is where the fish will be feeding on any given day, but I thought his general views very sound." (Letter from H.D. Turing to Maurice Headlam, 1937).
