Wet-Fly Fishing - Treated Methodically - With Illustrations (Paperback)
Wet fly-fishing, as opposed to dry fly-fishing, is a mode of fly-fishing whereby the fly is dragged underwater to mimic submerged flies that are being dredged along with the flow of the water. This vintage book contains a detailed guide to this style of fishing, offering information on the construction of artificial flies, the best techniques to use, necessary equipment, seasonal considerations, which fish can be caught by this method, and much more. Contents include: "Introductory", "The Fishing of Burns with the Wet-fly", "The Fishing of 'Waters', i.e. Tributary, Streams, etc.", "Rivers and Stream Generally, which have been Fished by the Author", "Concerning Flies", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with that in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
