THE ADAPTABLE FLYFISHER: WILD TROUT AND COARSE FISH ON FLY. By Lou Stevens.

CLEAR-WATER TROUT FISHING WITH WORM. By Sidney Spencer.

(1935) 1985 2nd edition reprint. 8vo (140 x 224mm). Pp95. B/w photographs, illustrations. Orange boards, spine titled in black.

A very useful guide to the art of trout fishing in clear water with worm. Spencer covers every aspect of the method and though originally written in the 1930s, this book has remained the definitive work on the subject. "Within recent years enlightened angling opinion has raised clear-water worm fishing - the "upstream-worm" of the north country angler - to the high place it once occupied as a result of the uncanny skill and success of men like Stoddart and Stewart." Chapters include: Upstream worming in perspective; Rods and tackle; Hooks; Baits and baiting; When and where to fish; How to fish; Bites and their interpretation; Approaching the water - wading - concealment. *The 1935 edition uses hyphenated 'clear-water' on the title page and dust-wrapper. The 1977 edition and the 1985 reprint have it as 'clear water' on the title page and cover.
