He then worked out the new patterns with the local fly-dresser reproducing as nearly as possible the precise shades of colour of the natural insect. He fished with these flies only from 1903 to 1909 with great success. For the serious fly - fisher Ñ a highly detailed, informative and well produced publication Ñ both well written and with beautiful plates throughout. Bookseller Inventory # UTTX405ND
