# Long out-of-print and difficult to find. A good guide to aquatic and terrestrial insects and their representation, especially for Scotland, the West Country, Wales and Northern England. "The choice of the right fly for a particular stretch of water and its use under varying weather conditions has always exercised the wits of anglers. Taff Price has drawn on his long experience to provide one category of fly-fishermen with his own choice of over 270 flies, including some artificials of his own design. His selection is accompanied by a lively account of his own fishing and of the circumstances in which his various flies caught fish." Chapters include: On streams and rivers; On artificial flies; Insect life; The upwing flies (Ephemeroptera); The sedge flies (Trichoptera); The stoneflies (Plecoptera); The flat-wing flies (Diptera); Other flies; Ants, bees and wasps (Hymenoptera); Beetles (Coleoptera); Moths (Lepidoptera); Grubs and caterpillars; The hoppers; Other fauna; Famous flies; General nymphs; Flies for flood water; Flies for fast water; Flies for West Country rivers; North Country flies; Flies for Scottish rivers; Flies for Welsh waters; Grayling flies; Fly dressing notes and sketches.
