From the Back Cover:

In 1890, Mary Orvis Marbury - daughter of the founder of The Orvis Company - wrote to anglers all over the country soliciting information on their favorite flies and how they were to be made and used. Her inquiries resulted in publishable responses from more than two hundred fly fishermen in thirty-eight states. Marbury compiled these responses to form this book, first published in 1892. Favorite Flies went through nine printings by 1896 - a fishing best-seller even by today's standards. With its clear descriptions of nearly 300 flies, accompanied by fascinating - and expert - advice on their use, this definitive compilation sounds as startlingly current today as it did over a century ago. (6 X 9, 576 pages, color photos, b&w photos, illustrations)

About the Author:

Mary Orvis Marbury, the daughter of Charles Orvis, was born in 1856 in Manchester, Vermont. Her efforts as a fly tier, businesswoman, author, and editor helped The Orvis Company thrive and prosper down to the present day.
