Dry fly fishing in the Scottish Borders. "I still see so many fly fishers on the Border fishing down stream with wet flies under nearly hopeless conditions, in June, July, and August, that I believe a great many mistaken ideas still prevail as to the difficulties of dry-fly fishing and the special tackle necessary for it; hence some account embodying an experience of nearly ten years of exclusively dry-fly fishing on Border waters may be of interest." Chapters include:- Dry fly and wet fly; Dry-fly fishing; Flies - real and artificial; The feeding of trout; About tackle, with some remarks on border fishing; Dry-fly fishing on the Borders.
