46 Mottram, J. C.Fly Fishing, Some New Arts and Mysteries; New Book
1994 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) One of a Limited Edition of 950 copies quarter-bound in tan leatherover gray cloth-covered boards with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. Housed in matching cloth covered slipcase. ***(Synopsis) Mottram was a radiologist. His scientific training gave him great advantages as an investigative trout angler. His fly patterns for nymphs, smuts and silhouette duns were years ahead of their time. These patterns date from pre-1915! In his Introduction, Mottram suggests the different types of fisherman he is addressing: For the hunter, there is much of practice, the record of many facts, the outcome of many experiments. Chapters on optics, mechanics, and the colour-sense of fish will, it is hoped, interest the scientific. For the fly-tier, there are hints on waterside fly-tying and a discourse on flies of the future. For the fish-breeder, waterweeds and the treatment of mud are discussed. The naturalist is told of birds and the habits of fish, and even the poacher will, it may be, find some things a little to his liking. This is an important book for the fly-fisherman and fly-tyer, as relevant today as it was eighty years ago., AB01095.

52 Ransome, ArthurRod and Line; New Book
1993 Flyfisher's Classic Library; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Leather-Bound, in Slipcase
(Description) One of a Limited Edition of 600 copies quarter-bound in dark-brown leather with gilt title and highlights and silk marker ribbon. Housed in matching cloth covered slipcase. ***(Synopsis) In addition to his brilliant success as foreign correspondent in Russia and as author of the Swallows & Amazons series of books for children, Arthur Ransome (1884-1967) produced two irresistible fishing books. The first of these, Rod and Line (1929), a collection of pieces originally written for The Guardian newspaper, is probably the most delightful fisherman's bedside book ever produced. Arthur Ransome shared with Harry Plunket Greene a most appealing sense of humour, as well as a passion for fishing and fishing history. But unlike the author of Where the Bright Waters Meet, Ransome was no chalkstream man; he was from the North, lived for years in the Lake District, and did most of his fishing on local rivers and tarns. He confessed to being no more than an average performer with the rod, content to creel pike or perch and the odd eel when nothing finer was available. His skill as a writer, however, was of the first rank. No one has bettered Ransome's wonderful descriptions of fishing days, nor evoked with such art the characters of old anglers, fly-tyers and companions., AB01097.
