PLU STINIOG - FLIES OF THE FFESTINIOG AREA. Emrys Evans, Manod, was a well-known North Wales fisherman and a keen historian of Welsh angling. He formed a collection of 133 fly patterns used in the multitude of hill lakes in the area of Blaenau Ffestiniog, together with extensive manuscript notes. To add to this portfolio, his son-in-law, Gareth Tudor Jones, photographed each fly. After Emrys's death in 2008, at the age of 91 years, his family explored the possibility of publishing his work. With the aid of a grant from the local "Communities First," Geraint Vaughan Jones was able to edit and publish it. Very well illustrated, this forms a unique and valuable record of flies, principally for trout but also including patterns for sea-trout and salmon, many of them unique to this area. This copy is one of only ten copies of the first edition, written in Welsh, finely hand-bound in red leather, and issued by the Flyfisher's Classic Library to coincide with the publication of the first English edition.
