J. R. Harris is an angler and a systematic naturalist – a contented blend, and one that is in no way special, for angler-naturalists are one of the pillars of the British average history.

Anglers, of all human teams dedicated to a pastime or a game, are probably the main strongly enthusiastic about their career and with all that belongs to it. certainly, the truth that wearing fish feed basically upon bugs and will be stuck by means of units which simulate those bugs, has been the foundation for a systematic literature and an both magnificent demonstrate of invention in fly-tying.

Nevertheless, whereas anglers have continually been attracted to the clinical foundation of simulation of the bugs as lures for fish, not one of the many books on angling which were released have ever dealt satisfactorily with the angler’s entomology in all its features. during this ebook, for the 1st time, relatively sufficient illustrations – either in color, by means of T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a truly sufficient textual content are supplied, during which all levels of the entire vital angler’s flies might be pointed out, even if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.

Furthermore, Mr Harris has rationalised the nomenclature of the flies with no breaking with culture, in order that whilst anglers from eire and England meet and talk about the several forms of nymphs, duns and spinners, they could, with using this e-book, be fairly definite accurately what it really is they're conversing approximately. The writers of the earlier weren't constantly really so sure, for they weren't armed with color photos or with the most recent advancements in entomology.

We consider confident that this ebook will wake up a brand new serious 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.
