Details

"[The author] was a writer of real quality, and in "Where the bright waters meet" he produced an outstanding angling autobiography, which is quite rightly regarded as a classic of the chalk-streams. ...In this book, as well as paying homage to the Bourne, he wrote chapters on Blagdon, the Test and the Kennet, and while he lays down no definite instructions, he brings us to his side while he is fishing, and leaves us to find out his true quality from watching him at work". (Howard Marshall in his introduction to the 1969 edition). Reproduced from the third edition of 1936, this revised second Flyfisher's Classic Library edition includes black and white photographs from the 1924 edition and the "Iron-Blue" chapters from "Pilot". Edition limited to 950 numbered copies. The previous management of The Flyfisher's Classic Library had the most recent batch of these books bound in buckram, a high-quality book-binding cloth, rather than the leather binding previously used.
