North Country Flies. By T.E. Pritt, Angling Editor of the "Yorkshire Post," and Honorary Secretary, Yorkshire Anglers' Association. Comprising eleven plates of hand-painted illustrations, from the author's own drawings, with particulars of the dressings and season of each fly; and chapters on fishing the minnow, the creeper, the stonefly, and the worm in clear water, with an extra plate showing the hooks necessary therefor. North Country Flies is one of the most important and influential books on flyfishing. Pritt described the soft-hackled wet flies in use among northern English anglers of his aquaintance, setting out the methods, fly patterns and techniques drawn from their common experience. This account of North Country fishing found resonance with flyfishers around the world. Pritt was a formative influence in the works of Edmonds and Lee, Leisenring and Hidy, Sylvester Nemes, and all those who have written abour fly-tying and fishing in the North Country style. This edition has a new Foreword by Roger Fogg. The Flyfisher's Classic Library edition is limited to only fifty copies, each with a bookplate signed and numbered by the publisher, Paul Morgan.
