"In this new book the author has expounded all the principles of the tying of trout, sea-trout and salmon flies in a manner which has never been surpassed; and these principles are enforced by numerous diagrams each of which shows all essentials yet nothing that is superfluous. The result is that the beginner can learn as easily as if he were watching an expert at work, while the experienced fly dresser cannot fail to profit by the experience of forty years which has enabled the author to compile a book which is as complete as it is concise". Originally published in serial form in Game And Gun, under the pen-name, "Argus". Chapters include:- Outfit and accessories; How to tie a hackled quill dry fly; The hackled alder; Dubbed bodies; More bodies and winged wet flies; Winged dry flies; Ribbing hackles and detached bodies; Unorthodox trout flies; Salmon flies; The thunder and lightning; The silver grey; The Durham ranger and Akroyd; Odds and ends; Keeping materials. An appendix gives dressings for nine salmon flies.
