Details

This edition combines the best features of the earlier editions, and has a new introduction by Jeremy Paxman. "Some consider Fly Fishing (1899) to be the best fishing book ever written.The volume deals with trout, sea trout and salmon. Grey places fishing for sea trout on a pinnacle, and describes the greatness of salmon fishing. On trout, he was the first writer of importance on the dry-fly who really knew what the wet-fly meant. Although modest, he was an expert angler, and he detailed much that is useful and instructive. His prose is clear and vigorous - the book is a literary achievement of high order." (Flyfisher's Classic Library).
