"In this book ...it has been my endeavour to present a general selection of patterns both wet and dry, together with some unorthodox types, all of which from my own experience, or that of others have been found effective." This book is the first incarnation of what became A Dictionary of Trout Flies: And of Flies For Sea-Trout And Grayling. The proportion of flies to discussion increased immensely in the later editions. Chapters include:- Fly-fishing literature; On non-rising fish; Mayflies; On pollution; Elementary; On unconventional flies and various experiments; Autopsies; On caterpillars, grubs, etc; Hooks and hook sizes; Trout fishing in lakes and reservoirs; Wet or dry; Odd notes; Mostly about colour; Flies of the future; Nymphs; Loch flies; American flies; Some observations on the list of flies; List of natural and artificial flies.
