MODERN TROUT FISHING. By W. Carter Platts.

1938 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 228mm). Ppx,242 + 2pp ads. B/w photographs. Brown cloth, spine titled in gilt.

"This volume is the result of an honest effort to describe, with such impartiality as I am capable of, the many and various legal methods of catching trout with rod and line in common usage to-day in the British Isles". Carter Platts further states that he has avoided "hysterical partisanship" and "I crave forgiveness of the fly fisher for having devoted so much space to bait fishing, while, with equal humility, I entreat the pardon of the bait fisher for allotting so many pages to fly fishing". Platt's recommended reading on the subject of entomology is W.G. Bainbridge's The Fly-fisher's Guide to Aquatic Flies. Some of the material in the text was first published in the Field and the Salmon and Trout Magazine, and no less than H.D. Turing and G.E.M. Skues helped prepare the manuscript.
