About this Item

[6] 384 pp. "Best book on fishing I've ever read" said Charlie Fox. Charlie Brooks in 'Larger Trout for the Western Fly Fisherman' wrote: I considered How to Fish from Top to Bottom by Sid Gordon the most valuable purely fishing book I've ever read. If you have to go with only one book for freshwater fishing, including fly-fishing, this is it. This book is high on my list on what I feel are among the best angling books of the last half of the 20th century. An informative read. In uncommon first edition, the book is wider, with a different cover design, and the dustjacket differs from the second edition's reset and different rear panel and rear flap text. The author died about a year after the publication of this landmark book, and did not live to sign many copies or see the huge sucess this book became as evidenced by the huge (by sporting standards) later printings. Still in print over 55 years later, I can't count how many copies I've handled that have all sorts of previous owner's information added in margin notes, endpaper notes, underlining, or circling within. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 140021
