"This book is offered as a companion volume to an earlier work - Scottish Trout Flies - witht eh same three-fold purpose, namely, to record some of the very excellent lists of trout flies not readily available to the average fly-fisherman; to provide a small reference book of English (and Welsh) trout flies; and, finally, to seek to draw from analyses findings most applicable to the advancement of contemporary trout flies. But whereas the literature of Scotland is regrettably meagre, that of England is so abundant as to amount almost to embarras de choix. A compromise in the matter of selection is inevitable, and, such as it is, it is tendered in the hope that it proves to be of interest and service." Chapters include: Origin and design of the English trout fly; West-Country flies; Usk flies and favourite Welsh patterns; North-Country flies; South-Country flies; Of wet flies and nymphs; Variations on a theme; Favourite fancy flies; Reservoir flies, their new importance; Evolutionary; Epilogue.
