NYMPHS AND THE TROUT. By Frank Sawyer.

(1958) 1977 2nd edition reprint. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp272. Frontispiece portrait photograph, b/w line drawings. Green boards, spine titled in gilt.

This key book in the evolution of chalkstream flyfishing for trout and grayling also includes a chapter on "Lesser Quarry," on nymph fishing for chub, dace and roach; on "Experiments With Salmon"; and on "Still Waters"; and, of course, on river keeping. The second edition was completely revised and rewritten to take into account a further ten years' observation and practice with the upstream nymph. It is a great deal longer and also includes chapters on Chew and Blagdon, on fishing in Cornwall, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Bavaria. However, it had fewer photographs than the first edition. The 1977 reprint includes the portrait photograph of Sawyer, but omits the other plates. The 1979 and 1981 reprints of the second edition used inferior materials and the photographs were omitted entirely. Although they have A. and C. Blackdust-wrappers and prices, and carry the same ISBN, I assume that these printings were produced mainly for sale through the book clubs.
