Nevertheless, whereas anglers have continuously 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 points. during this publication, for the 1st time, rather sufficient illustrations – either in color, via T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a truly enough textual content are supplied, wherein all levels of all of the vital angler’s flies may be pointed out, no matter if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.
Furthermore, Mr Harris has rationalised the nomenclature of the flies with out breaking with culture, in order that while anglers from eire and England meet and talk about the several different types of nymphs, duns and spinners, they could, with using this ebook, be rather definite accurately what it really is they're speaking approximately. The writers of the earlier weren't continually relatively so convinced, for they weren't armed with color pictures or with the newest advancements in entomology.
We think confident that this e-book will wake up a brand new severe perform, and learn of what's fairly the main attention-grabbing a part of angling. additional, will probably be of curiosity to a large circle of naturalists past the anglers and the entomologists.
