The Golden Age of Fly-Fishing: The Best of the Sportsman 1927-1937, Coykendall, Ralf (Ed.)
9 Coykendall, Ralf (Ed.)The Golden Age of Fly-Fishing: The Best of the Sportsman 1927-1937; 0881503983 / 9780881503982, New Book
1997 Countryman Press; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) A collection of 26 articles and dozens of illustrations from the pages of The Sportsman, America's premier sporting magazine in its time: 1927-37. Authors include Eugene Connett, Frederick White, John Alden Knight, Edward R. Hewitt, Robert Page Lincoln, George D.B. Bonbright, and Jack Russell; illustrations are by A.L. Ripley and Ralph Boyer. When Ralf Coykendall Jr. was but a gleam in his father's eye, Ralf Sr. was working as the advertising director of The Sportsman. Some 60 years later, the younger Coykendall--by now a noted sporting collectibles dealer and author in his own right--came across a stash of the long-defunct magazine in an attic. He recognized immediately what a treasure he'd found. From those yellowed pages he has selected this anthology of writings and drawings on fly-fishing--one of the fastest-growing sports in America today. All of them have aged well: There are a (surprisingly) few quaint references to long-ago equipment (the care and feeding of silk fly lines, for instance), but the strategies, flies, and fish-catching wisdom found here are as timely and illuminating as the day they were written. What has changed is tone: Each article is gracious, unhurried, and optimistic. Fly-fishing has changed little, it seems, but fly-fishers have changed much., AB00239.

Fine 4to Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
***(Synopsis) The Fly Fishing Anthology features glorious artwork and more than twenty stories and essays celebrating, reminiscing, and bemoaning the high sport of fly fishing. This first-of-its-kind book is divided into six themed chapters. The first chapter features stories of initiation—none painless and all memorable. Chapter two explores the glorious vistas of fly fishing country. In the third chapter, our writers go nuts for trout, that highest echelon of game fish. Chapter four examines the seductive art of fly-tying. The fifth chapter is devoted to reminiscences, and the final chapter defends the great sport of fly fishing. More than half of the pieces take jabs—some gentle, some sharp—at the sport of fly fishing and the men and women who aim to master it. Highlights include John GierachÆs Keillor-esque vision of a sleepy Colorado trout fishing town jolted awake by the age of neoprene waders and Latin terminology, Charles Elliott fly fishing for the elusive bone-fish at the elbow of baseball great Ted Williams, and newcomer George Tichenor self-deprecating with cheerful aplomb as he practices casting a fly on the revered Willowemoc. The writing represents the best that fly fishing literature has to offer. In these pages, dry fly master George LaBranche argues with passionate conviction that dry fly fishing is the highest art of angling. Zane Grey waxes poetic on the wild, lonely beauty of his beloved West, and sports-writing genius Red Smith wrests a hilarious, epic tale out of an amateur fly tierÆs first Silver Tip pattern. Of course, the fly fishing legends are present in these pages, including Cornelia Fly Rod Crosby, G. E. M. Skues, and Joan Salvato Wulff., AB00011.
