Item Description: Flyfisher's Classic Library. Bovey Tracey. (1925) 1996 new edition. 8vo (159 x 240mm). Pp139. B/W plates by G.E. Studdy. Fully bound in bonded leather, gilt, silk marker. Edition limited to 750 copies. Very good copy. The expert angling author, H. T. Sheringham teamed up with the illustrator G. E. Studdy (of 'Bonzo' fame) to produce, in 1925, a most hilarious and charming book. No fisherman will keep a straight face on reading the text and viewing the illustrations. This book is an ideal gift to any fellow angler. We offer a brief excerpt: "A Bull It sometimes happens that you come upon a bull suddenly and without a moment for thought or plan. Then you must depend on the moral dignity of man, on a haughty brow, a flashing eye. Do not, however, presume on your manifest superiority. Behave as one gentleman to another. If the bull is right-minded he will move slowly away.If not, if he shows a disposition to contest your passage, you must advanceupon him, shouting in a great and terrible voice. If this has no effect, you are obviously in a tight place, and there is but one thing to do. Lie down at once and pretend to be dead." Quotation from a letter by the author - "Some (underlined) of it is still amusing - Mr Takingsilk and the Nox Ambrosiana, for instance. With other parts I am not so pleased as Iwas. "Nos et mutamur", alas! But Studdy's corn is immense - worth the pricethe publishers ask for the whole book". Bookseller Inventory # 34775

"A milestone in angling literature." Tom Ivens' "Stillwater fly-fishing" and Clarke's "The pursuit of stillwater trout" marked the transition of stillwater trout fishing in Britain from traditional loch-style to modern imitative methods. This was really the first book to set out in a logical way the thought processes which led the author to be able to choose one fly in preference to another, knowing that he had made a reasoned and sensible choice. The novice, faced with a huge expanse of water, and without the experience of previous successes, lacks the confidence that a trout would want to eat his patently artificial lure. This book provides the reasoning for him to decide on fly pattern and method. New edition with the 2001 preface, "Twenty-five years on." (Published price GBP 30.00). Bookseller Inventory # 34648

Pictorial laminated boards. No dust-wrapper - as issued. One corner severely bumped affecting boards and corner of text block. A good reading copy only. "For those of you who have read Harry's illuminating and forthright articles over the years, you will not be disappointed with this wonderful book. As well as charting a fishing career that began in 1952, Harry also waxes lyrically, probingly and caustically on the rise of the carp angler over that time, and the good and bad that he feels has come from that. It's not all carp, though - far from it - and Harry takes us back to the glory days of rivers like the Avon, the Stour and the Sussex Ouse in his pursuit of specimen barbel, chub and roach. He also just happened to hold the Ardingly pike record when that reservoir opened its gates to pike anglers in the mid-eighties - but that didn't end well, as you'll read. But carp angling is Harry's first love, and he's very good at it! So much so that he can only allude to his recent, remarkable captures over the past decade from a very secret and strictly non-publicity water. That said, he has caught enough wonderful carp to grace the pages twice over, and throughout the book relates the thrills and heartaches that their pursuit can bring." A very good and wide-ranging book that is by no means all carp fishing making it a good read for both carp angler and all-rounder alike. Highly recommended. 9780957231245.
