Since its historic first issue back in 1895, Field & Stream magazine has published several thousand articles on trout fishing - far more than on any other fish. The very best of these writings have been collected in this marvelously full and entertaining collections.Starting with a Civil War hero's description of fly-fishing in his youth and a 1900 account of catching 21/2-pound brook trout just twenty-six miles from New York City, there are splendid (and historically important) articles by such masters as Dr. James Henshall, Emlyn Gill, Nash Buckingham, Eugene Connett, G. M. L. LaBranche, Arthur Macdougall, Edward R. Hewitt, and Sid Gordon. The table of contents reads like a Who's Who of American trout fishing - the reader will outwit picky trout with Ray Bergman, take a trip out to New Zealand's waters with Russell Chatham, chase rainbows with Corey Ford, catch steelhead with Zane Grey, visit a legendary fly-tyer and rooster-raiser with A. J. McClane, catch a giant brookie with Peter Kaminsky, and land huge fish on the lightest fly rod in history with Lee Wulff. The Field & Stream Treasury of Trout Fishing is a book to read and reread, for enjoyment, for adventure, for humor, for the sheer joy of it. (7 1/4 X 9 1/2, 324 pages, illustrations)
