Fly-fishing is a difficult art to master and it puts the fish on the bank in the most challenging way possible by using a delicate creation of fur, feather and tinsel in an attempt to precisely mimic a real fly. This collection offers the best art and literature associated with fly-fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout from river, lake, and stream over four centuries to enable you to conjure up those magical days by the water's edge.
