Details

Superb colour illustrations of classic salmon flies from the period of Blacker and Jones, including the beautiful "Fairy Fly" feature in this delightful and most sought after collector's book. Parson Newland writes: "...All that I have ever contemplated in writing this book, is to give my readers some idea of a fisherman's life ... Many a green bank have I trodden since those days - many a rapid and many a pool have I thrown my fly over; but there is no 'fisherman's home' like the old low-browed room at Belleek, and no river in the whole world like my first love - the Erne." Originally published in 1851 this is one of the scarcest and most desirable of the 19th Century Irish fishing books. This edition has a very well researched new introduction by Kevin McKenna.
