Hugh Sheringham died in mid-1930, during the preparation of this book for publication. Sheringham's co-author John Moore saw their book through publication, adding a 1,600-word appreciation of Sheringham's life by way of introduction. Sheringham designed this book as a wide-ranging introduction to the fly-fishing of the time with a representative sample of good-quality authors. Australasia was omitted because the manuscript of that section was lost in transit. Exceedingly expensive British rivers such as the Herefordshire Wye and the Spey were omitted as being unattainable and therefore irrelevent to the practical angler. Contributions from Skues, Van Dyke, Radcliffe, Ransome, Calderwood, Plunket Greene, Griswold and others. Good chapters on saltwater flyfishing by Arthur F. Bell and chub on the fly by John C. Moore. Chapters include: De maximis; 'Out of Macedonia'; If we started afresh; The travelling companion; The fly rod in North America; Fly fishing in Norway; Salmon and sea trout; Salmon fishing in Canada; The magnificence of the chub; Black bass on the fly rod; A talk about it; The sound of it; The colour of it; The poetry of it; De minimis.
