Nevertheless, whereas anglers have regularly been drawn to the clinical 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 facets. during this publication, for the 1st time, quite enough illustrations – either in color, through T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a very enough textual content are supplied, wherein all levels of all of the very important angler’s flies could be pointed out, no matter if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.
