    Book details

The author attempts to settle once and for all the raging controversy over whether it is better to embrace the dry fly or wet fly school of fly fishing. And while this topic remains unresolved this classic is a richly warm and extensively useful volume on virtually every aspect of fly fishing for trout. From rod to reel, from line to leader no stone in the stream is left unturned. This softbound edition of “:Trout Fly Fishing in America”: first published in 1914 is among a series of classic antiquarian sporting book intended to bring these works to a wider audience than could possibly be reached by access only to those remaining copies of originally published works. IN 1914 the author prophetically wrote: “:Some of the greatest fly fishing waters in the world are in North America, but sadly in certain areas the trout in streams have become depleted. The streams of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and in much of New England have suffered most. Depletion and, in some cases, complete extermination of the Brook Trout for example are really due to a number of causes. Protection of these streams came too late in many instances. And while government cannot restore the natural conditions that existed they can pass laws to protect these resources for the future generations. This alone, however, will not suffice without the aid of the anglers themselves. It would also be a good thing if all fishable trout waters, except small brooks, were restricted solely to fly-fishing with the artificial fly.”: “:Trout Fly Fishing in America”: is a facsinating look back at fly fihing in American trout waters near the turn of the last century.
