In this lavish presentation, Colonel Joseph D. Bates Jr., makes the first contemporary attempt to present a full account of the Atlantic salmon fly. Relying on a lifetime of experience as an angler, writer, and collector, Bates, a man regarded by many as the acknowledged expert in the field, takes us on a tour of the history and development of these remarkably beautiful lures.
