“The Book of the Fly-Rod” is a classic guide to fly fishing by Hugh Sheringham. It contains a wealth of interesting and useful information, historical details, authentic anecdotes, and tidbits from the author’s extensive personal experience fly-fishing all over the world. Entertaining and informative, this timeless and profusely-illustrated volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in fly-fishing and it’s history, and it would make for a superb addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “De Maximis”, “Out of Macedonia”, “If We Started Afresh”, “The Travelling Companion”, “The Fly-Rod in North America”, “Fly-fishing in Norway”, “Salmon and Sea Trout”, “Salmon Fishing in Canada”, “The Management of the Club”, “Black Bass”, “The Fly-Rod in the Sea”, “A Talk About It”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
