Anglers, of all human teams dedicated to a pastime or a recreation, are might be the main strongly captivated with their profession and with all that belongs to it. certainly, the truth that wearing fish feed basically upon bugs and will be stuck via units which simulate those bugs, has been the root for a systematic literature and an both extraordinary exhibit of invention in fly-tying.

Nevertheless, whereas anglers have constantly been attracted to the medical foundation of simulation of the bugs as lures for fish, not one of the many books on angling which have been released have ever dealt satisfactorily with the angler’s entomology in all its features. during this publication, for the 1st time, particularly enough illustrations – either in color, through T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a very sufficient textual content are supplied, during which all phases of all of the very important angler’s flies should be pointed out, no matter if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.

We believe confident that this booklet will wake up a brand new severe perform, and examine of what's fairly the main interesting a part of angling. extra, it will likely be of curiosity to a large circle of naturalists past the anglers and the entomologists.
