History of Fly-Fishing in Fifty Flies by Ian Whitelaw


History of Fly-Fishing in Fifty Flies by Ian Whitelaw

The History of Fly-Fishing in Fifty Flies recounts the history of a sport that dates back 2,000 years, focusing on milestone flies; from the first feathered hook to contemporary patterns using cutting-edge materials.

Among the countless fly patterns created over the centuries, these 50 have been carefully chosen to represent the development, not only of the flies themselves, but also of fly-fishing techniques - and of rods, lines, and reels.

Filled with profiles of the key characters involved, tying tips, photographs and illustrations of the flies, and detailed explanations of the techniques used to fish them, The History of Fly-Fishing in Fifty Flies is a fascinating companion to the evolution of this fascinating sport.
