In this revised second edition "...nine new chapters - a fascinating bookful of information in themselves - have been added to the original edition... Greased line fishing is dealt with in a masterly way. Fly control methods of the greased line are cleverly adapted to sunk fly fishing by novel means." The new chapters include: Why does a Salmon take the Fly?; What Size of Fly?; Glitter and Sparkle; Fishing the Small Rivers; Some Greased-Line Experiences; Greased Line in Autumn; Handlining; Fishing Alone in a Boat; Fishing a Loch; and Dapping for Sea Trout. The chapters on Flies without Hooks have been omitted from this edition. "As the printer's stocks were destroyed in London bombing, and rendered reprinting necessary, I have taken this opportunity to make some additions." (Angling, July-Aug 1948).
