"This is a 'growth sport', and the anglers would not be human if the did not occaisionally resent the flow of newcomers to their favourite waters. But fly-fishing is under attack, not only by those who would, if they could, ban all field sports, but by the developers, the drainage experts, the river-polluters, the old car- and washing-machine depositers, by all the protagonists of our efluent society.. ..Fly-fishing has changed through the centuries far less than hunting or shooting. We still catch trout very much as Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton caught them. I hope that this description of how the sport was practised in the past, and is practised today, will encourage many to try their hand at it, and thereby become stout and resourceful defenders of our rivers, lakes and streams."
