Beschreibung

(1898) 2000 new edition. 8vo (160 x 240mm). Ppxvi,303,ad. Colour frontispiece portrait, colour photograph plates, b/w engravings. Blue bonded leather gilt, silk marker. Fine copy in slip-case. Edition limited to 950 numbered copies. Principally of interest today are the recipes for salmon flies of that time. Sir Herbert was an ardent fly-tyer: his chapters on flies and fly-dressing are important reference points for modern enthusiasts. He lists the original dressings for such standard classics as the Wilkinson, the Mar Lodge, Dusty Miller and Silver Doctor - but also, in a fairly long list, many less familiar patterns such as the Rory, the Owenmore, the Hell Fire, the Butcher, and more. Sir Herbert's comments are amusing and instructive - the Butcher he calls "A venerable pattern with nothing to recommend it except its antiquity and killing properties, for it is a tiresome fly to dress and an ugly beast to look at." Of the Childers he notes: "Not a favourite of mine, but guilty of thousands of murders." His own flaming scarlet and gold creation, the "Sir Herbert", invented almost in jest to annoy conservative ghillies, he cannot recommend "for this reason, that the hackle lying over the tinsel is very apt to be cut" by a salmon's teeth. Typically practical advice from an experienced fisherman. In addition to the many fascinating details included in the text, are some of Sir Herbert's superb fishing anecdotes. He was one of the wittiest of fishing writers, and well understood the value of interspersing the lessons and information with some entertainment. With a new biographical chapter by Richard Hunter and a colour-illustrated comic poem written (and illustrated) by Sir Herbert to Cameron of Lochiel. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 7718
