Hard Cover with DJ. ][Cat. 2017] 17-0148 z. –Fascinating account, often at variance with popularized accounts from the Catskill school about Theodore Gordon et al. and much of British fly fishing history. Anyone interested in the roots of our angling traditions, or in the evolution of our angling tools such as fly, rods, reels, and lines will benefit from this masterful account. Highly Recommended.
