Item Description: Nick Lyons Books / Winchester Press. New York / Piscataway, New Jersey. (1985) later reprint. 8vo (145 x 216mm). Ppxiv,142. B/w illustrations by Richard Harrington. Cream paper-covered boards, quarter-bound in Burgundy cloth, spine titled in gilt. Very good in slightly used dust-wrapper. "This is the story of the wild (or streambred) brook, brown, and rainbow trout in the freestone, or rainfed, streams and rivers that make up most of (the USA's) running-water trout fisheries. Here are the little-known facts about their evolution, their life histories, and especially their lifestyle - how water currents, stream contours, and temperature changes affect their behaviour. Why will trout sometimes take freely when none are seen feeding? Why are they, at other times, virtually uncatchable? Why do you nearly always raise a good fish in one poace and never in another that looks the same?" Leonard M. Wright ventures to suggest some answers. Bookseller Inventory # 38005

No other alterations have been made in the book." The book is divided into three sections: Fishing - old masters and dames; the fascination of fly fishing; fly fishing and fly fishing; chalk stream and dry fly; a day with the mayfly; fish and fishermen; elementary; flies; odds and ends; salmon fishing.

Item Description: Published by the authors. London. 1955 1st edition. Large stapled pamphlet (206 x 254mm). Ppii,28. B/w photographs, numerous photographs of locomotives, fold-out sketch-map. Unbound, stapled pamphlet. Browned and used privately published staple pamphlet.* * This is a crudely reproduced type-script with photographs and a hand-drawn sketch-map. The pamphlet is spirit-duplicated on loose sheets of paper and stapled together; "The producer regrets tha amateur nature of the production, but due to the very limited appeal, it is only practicable to allocate a restricted amount of money to the publication." This is an extremely detailed history of the Ashover Light Railway in Derbyshire's Amber Valley, collated from first-hand information. "When the Ashover Light Railway was opened in 1925, it became one of some two dozen narrow gauge railways which were operating in this country. Their number has slowly diminished so that now in 1955 there is nearer five than twentyfive narrow gauge lines. although situated in the centre of England and in close proximity to several large towns, the railway remained practically unknown except to the local inhabitants who besieged the little trains in their thousands at week-ends and holiday times." "Whilst the Ashover Light Railway was in operation, my family constituted the mainstay of the staff working on the line. I drove the engines, my brother Muarice was a fitter and my father (Teddy) was chief ganger with eight platelayers under him. the decline and ultimate closure of the line were matters of deep personal regret, for in my twenty years' service I had grown very attached to the railway. During the preliminary stages in the preparation of this little book I was glad to be able to recount my memories and check the information already collated. I now view its publication with pleasure." Harold T. Skinner. Chapters include: Introduction; The route of the A.L.R.; The history of the A.L.R.; Tickets and fares - The Crich Railway; Conclusions and memories; other Baldwin locos; Timetable; The remains of the A.L.R. on 1st Oct. 1955.; Loco numbers. Although Harold Skinner's name is given, the authors as such are only ever referred to as "the authors". Bookseller Inventory # 37986
