Including color illustrations and recipes for the original flies, the author guides you through their history and adds fascinating tidbits about fly-fishing itself. This book is great for fans of both fly-fishing and history. Sprinkled throughout are clever and thoughtful quotes about fly-fishing, inspiring enough to make you want to take that boat out on the water and make some casts yourself.
