Mary Orvis Marbury was the daughter of Charles Orvis, founder of the famous American tackle business. She ran the fly-tying department and this book is based on a questionaire sent out to Orvis's customers. "In the main, this work consists of a collection of letters from numerous fishermen in thirty-eight states, geographically arranged. The letters are records of actual experiences of seasoned angles. The author desired, above all, to assemble a body of practical information to assist fishermen 'when going to new waters'." (Dust-wrapper blurb from 1955 Branford edition.)
