AN ANGLER'S ENTOMOLOGY. By J.R. Harris. Collins New Naturalist No. 23. 1977 second edition reprint.

(1952) 1977 2nd edition reprint. 8vo (152 x 222mm). Ppxvi,268. Colour and b/w photographs, illustrations, bibliography. Green buckram, spine titled in gilt.

One of the most important and comprehensive books on entomology for the flyfisherman". In this book, for the first time, first-class illustrations - both in colour, by T.O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white - and a first-class text are provided, by which all stages of all the important angler's flies can be identified, whether the angler fishes in Ireland, Scotland, Wales or England. The nomenclature of the flies has been rationalised so that when anglers from Ireland and England meet to discuss different kinds of flies, they can, with the use of this book, be quite certain precisely what it is they are talking about". "It is without question the best thing of its kind which has appeared for over a century". (The Field). Chapters include: Part One - Ephemeroptera: Classification; Growth and structure; Life cycle; Adaptations; Emergence; Mating and flight; Egg-laying; Distribution and ecology of nymphs; Natural enemies and controlling factors; Taxonomy; Collecting; Part Two - Other Flies: Caddis-flies; Stone-flies; Diptera; Part Three - Flies and Fish: Period flies and modern names; Tastes of fish; A note on surface tension; Flies and fish; Notes on fly dressings. Appendices give: A list of anglers' insects; Keys to duns and spinners; Descriptions of Ephemeroptera; Fly dressings; Distribution maps; Bibliography.
