TROUT FLIES IN NEW ZEALAND. By Keith Draper.

(1971) 1975 reprint. 8vo (142 x 220mm). Pp183. Three colour plates of flies, line illustrations, pictorial end-papers. Black boards, spine titled in gilt.

"Most New Zealand artificial flies, as the author explains, were derived originally from English and Scottish patterns. But the entomology and conditions to be found in New Zealand, not to mention the inventive genius of its anglers, have led to the development of a strong indigenous fly-tying tradition. After a fascinating chapter on entomology for the angler, Keith Draper lists first of all Taupo and Canterbury lures, then wet and dry flies, and finally nymphs. Wherever possible the origin of the fly is given, along with the name of its designer and its 'natural' - the item on the trout's menu that first inspired it."
