SMALL-RIVER FLY FISHING FOR TROUT AND GRAYLING. By James Evans.

1972 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 225mm). Pp207. Colour frontispiece of flies, b/w illustrations. Green boards, spine titled in gilt.

A well-thought of book on fishing the rivers of the Welsh Marches. "By no means all fly fishermen positively enjoy reservoir fishing and still less can afford the classic chalk streams. For many, perhaps the majority, trout fishing means small rivers, brooks and the upper reaches of large rivers. This kind of water abounds throughout the land but is most numerous around the Celtic fringe - the West country, the Lake District and along the Welsh and Scottish borders. For the devotees of this sport, contemporary literature is uncharacteristically thin on the ground, and it is this need that "Small-River Fly Fishing" sets out to fill. All aspects are discussed comprehensively and sometimes perhaps controversially - tackle, tactics, natural and artificial flies, watercraft and water improvement - based on the author's longstanding enthusiasm for this kind of fishing."
