Synopsis: This volume contains a comprehensive guide to streamcraft, being a complete and detailed manual for the angling enthusiast. The information this book offers includes: how to care for your rod, line and reel; how properly to rig your rod and arrange your cast; how best to select your lure and to use it; how to describe the artificial fly which you have seen or used successfully; how to identify at least the most prevalent natural insects along and on the water; and how to dress the artificials in imitation thereof. Complete with concise information and a plethora of useful illustrations, this text is a must-have for the novice angler, and it makes for a great addition to collections of angling literature.

About the Author: Dr. George Parker Holden was a luminary of the American angling world in the early twentieth century, who wrote the angling manual ""Streamcraft"" in 1919 and numerous articles for the Angler's Club of New York Bulletin. His milestone book from 1920, ""The Idyl of the Split-Bamboo,"" is credited with starting the home rodbuilding movement.
