"Frank Sawyer is well known as the keeper on a famous stretch of the Wiltshire Avon. He is also author, naturalist, broadcaster, and one of the very few people able to catch trout to the order of a television team. The result of forty years' close observation and constant practice is here set out in the most thorough, informative, and attractive manner". (Anglers' Annual 1958). 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.
