Andrew Herd is an associate editor of Waterlog and well-known for his witty contributions to the magazine. The Fly is the result of a decade's research into the history of fly fishing and is arguably the most authoritative work ever published on the subject. It breaks much new ground, particularly where medieval fly fishing is concerned and aims to put the reader in the shoes of our ancestors, enabling him to understand what it was like to cast a fly in times gone by, from the Romans to the present day. "Andrew Herd's text bristles with facts . . . blended with fresh and often colourful comments on the valuable and sometimes bizarre background material that has somehow eluded other authors". Fred Buller. ". . . one of the best pieces of writing and thought in fly fishing literature". John Betts.
