28 Halford, Frederic M.Modern Development of the Dry Fly; 1905396007 / 9781905396009, New Book
2005 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Ltd. Ed. Of 150
As New 8vo Hardcover, in Slipcase
(Publisher's Synopsis) Contrary to what Halford says in Floating Flies and How to Dress Them (1886) and Dry Fly Entomology (1897) where 90 and 100 flies are described, in Modern Development he now feels that the 33 are, to my mind, quite sufficient patterns for any dry-fly man on a south country or other chalk stream. During 1902 Halford collected a very large number of specimens of flies on which the rising trout were feeding and preserved them in formalin which he had read about in an article in the Field in 1901. He then worked out the new patterns with the local fly-dresser reproducing as nearly as possible the precise shades of colour of the natural insect. He fished with these flies only from 1903 to 1909 with great success. Part I - The Halford Dry Fly Patterns - contains everything concerned with tying these patterns, matching the colours, sizes, proportions, tools and materials required etc. Part II -The Halford Dry Fly Patterns in Use - is just that but, of course, with Halford's inimitable attention to detail and analysis. With a new Introduction by Tony Hayter., AB01253.

32 Hill, FrederickSalmon Fishing: The Greased Line On Dee, Don Aand Earn; New Book
2002 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) Limited Edition #96 of 950 copies bound in full green leather with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. Housed in matching cloth covered slipcase. ***(Synopsis) This book by a Dee ghillie gives the fruit of a life's experience and will be of the greatest value and interest not only to the novice fisherman but also (by way of reminder and confirmation) to experts. Mr Hill knows his craft; and fortunately he is able to get it across in an extraordinarily clear and readable manner. There are diagrams to illustrate practical points where words might fail. Like most anglers Mr Hill is something of a naturalist, and a great lover of life on the river bank. The frontispiece shows him with the tame blackbird which returned to converse with him year after year., AB01115.

35 Hills, John WallerA Summer on the Test; New Book
1996 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) One of a Limited Edition of 500 copies bound in full tan leather with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. Housed in matching cloth covered slipcase. ***(Synopsis) No author has surpassed this description of classic chalkstream fishing, and very few authors knew half as much about the history of their sport as J.W. Hills. Summer on the Test as he describes it, seems like a fabulous vision from the golden age of fly fishing. Mr Halford is safely dead, the Armistice is signed, the war is finished and the upstream nymph may in appropriate circumstances be fished. This classic work makes rather painful reading in some respects. Of all the rivers which have been subject to decline and deterioration, the Test must rank near the top. In the 1920s, the river ran crystal clear through the buttercup meadows and brown trout were there in profusion. Now, those days seem impossible to recover. This book enables us to make an estimate of what it was once like, and what we have lost., AB01087.

36 Hills, John WallerRiver Keeper: The Life of William James Lunn; New Book
1998 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) Limited Edition #35 of 950 copies bound in full blue leather with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. ***(Synopsis) William Lunn was appointed keeper on the Houghton Water on the river Test on 1st January 1887, and remained there for 45 years. This book contains his views on chalkstream management, weed-cutting, restocking with mayfly, trout hatching etc., as well as his approach to fishing and his fly dressings, including the famous Lunn's Particular. This book really is a gold-mine of information; every page has precious gems about river management, vermin control, oberservations about aquatic insect or proven fly patterns. Though most of the text was written over 60 years ago, much of it can still be applied today. The book also gives an insight into a remarkable man. William Lunn, the foover of the dynasty that looked after the Houghton Club water on the Test for over 100 years, must have been a man of great patience and persistance. To take 26 years to restock the Houghton Water with mayfly, after inumerable setbacks, would challenge most mortals' stamina, but he succeeded., AB01084.

40 Kelson, GeorgeThe Land and Water Salmon Flies; New Book
1993 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) One of a Limited Edition of 1000 copies quarter-bound in black leather over black cloth-covered boards with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. Housed in matching cloth covered slipcase. ***(Synopsis) Originally published between 1886 and 1888, as 53 cards (in sets of 16 + 16 + 21, which were styled First Series, Second Series and Third Series), issued by the magazine Land and Water, to accompany Kelson's articles. The cards, each carrying a chromolithograph illustration of a salmon fly together with its origin and dressing, were to be pasted into blank spaces left in the magazine for that purpose. Then in 1902, six years after the appearance of Kelson's book The Salmon Fly: how to dress and how to use it, a further group of 32 patterns were offered en bloc in Land and Water. This latter group might justifiably be regarded as a supplement to The Salmon Fly. All 85 patterns are illustrated in superb full colour with detailed descriptions of their dressings. Thirty-nine of these patterns are not illustrated in The Salmon Fly of 1895, and eleven of them are not even mentioned in the book's text. It was not until 1988 that angling bookseller, R.J.W. Coleby, came across a scrapbook of them compiled by Johnny Mercer, fly dresser to Forrest of Kelso. At first Coleby did not appreciate what he had found, and it was only after much consultation with the leading collectors of the day that he pieced together this story. He says in his scholarly and informative introduction, No complete collection of all 85 flies has yet come to my notice. Entirely passed over in subsequent literature because researchers and writers were simply not aware of their existence, this is the first., AB01089.
