Item Description: Coch-y-Bonddu Books Angling Monographs Series. Machynlleth, Powys. 2017 1st edition. 8vo (165 x 242mm). Pp300. Colour and b/w photographs, illustrations. Pictorial card covers with flaps. Edition limited to 550 numbered copies, each signed by the author. Mint new copy. Signed by the author. Just launched at the British Fly Fair International, Saturday 11th February, 2017 at the Staffordshire County Showground. James Harper was the proprietor of the famous fishing tackle firm of William Brown of Aberdeen from 1901 to 1945, and during this time he kept detailed records of the 200 or so salmon fly patterns that the firm produced. The patterns come from many sources, some are well-known, some are variants of known patterns, some have previously only been known by their name, and some never been heard of before. The collection is particularly strong on Spey and Irish flies. In this book Colin Innes sets the scene with a tale of how the pattern list was "re-discovered, then goes on to give an entertaining and sometimes surprising history of the firm of William Brown and it's owners before revealing the list of patterns. Where possible the fly patterns have been illustrated with original vintage flies and cross-referenced with period books and tackle catalogues. Bookseller Inventory # 42464

Item Description: Coch-y-Bonddu Books Angling Monographs Series. Machynlleth, Powys. 2017 1st edition. 8vo (165 x 242mm). Pp108. Colour and b/w photographs, illustrations. Pictorial card covers with flaps. Edition limited to 250 numbered copies, each signed by the author. Mint new copy. Signed by the author. Just launched at the British Fly Fair International, Saturday 11th February, 2017 at the Staffordshire County Showground. Ernest Morland Crosfield (1856-1925) was one of the most influential salmon anglers and fly-tyers of the early 1900s. Unfortunately, although he wrote a couple of articles and kept a detailed record of his catches in his game book, he never consolidated his thoughts into a book. Others thought highly enough of him to record his fishing and fly-tying methods, but this material is contained in a diverse range of publications, not all of it easily accessible. In this book Colin Innes has gathered together Crosfield's articles, together with published and unpublished articles written about him, and even provided pictures of salmon flies tied by the man himself. It will be a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the history of salmon fishing and fly-tying in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It will also provide the salmon fly-tyer who wants to tie the "Crosfield style" with ample instruction, importantly backed up with illustrations of what the finished fly should look like.

Stapled card covers. Front cover very faded, staples rusty else good. The second title in this good series of regional angling guides published by the Highlands & Islands Development Board. A guide to the Isles of Shetland, Yell, Unst and Fetlar. "Jimmie Coutts, the author, points out in his preface that the variety of fishing available in the Shetlands was the main reason he felt compelled to write this guide. Not only does the fishing in Shetland set the islands apart, but also their peaceful freedom which, Coutts claims, does not exist in any other part of Western Europe. He has spent many hours fishing the Shetland waters, and as a result has been able to compile the most detailed and authoritative information about them. He makes a special point of specifying flies that should be used to get the best results, and pays particular attention to giving as clear directions as possible about access.".

Item Description: The Beaverkill Press / W.W. Norton and Company. New York. 1999 1st edition. Folio (252 x 338mm). Pp280. Spectacular colour and b/w photographs throughout, illustrations, colour maps on end-papers and throughout. Blue cloth, spine titled in silver-gilt. Fine new copy in dust-wrapper. "The Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Neversink, Esopus, Schoharie, and Delaware - the rivers of angling pioneers Thaddeus Norris, Robert Barnwell Roosevelt, Theodore Gordon, and many others - are celebrated in this gorgeous book of photographs and text. In three major sections, Land of Little Rivers presents historical and physical profiles of the rivers; classic rods, reels, and flies; and engaging stories of the people, events, and developments that constitute the Catskill fly-fishing tradition. Author Austin McK. Francis, noted angling historian and biographer and acknowledged authority on the history of Catskill fly fishing, has a home in the Catskill Mountains and has fished there for more than thirty-five years. Famed photographer and avid fly fisher Enrico Ferorelli, a regular contributor to National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines, spent five months creating the most evocative portfolio of photos ever made of these historic rivers. Together they have produced an exquisite, museum-quality work." "Mac Francis has had a long love affair with the Beaverkill and its sister streams. Every page in Land of Little Rivers - its photos, paintings, writings, but most of all Mac's reflections - is a celebration of his passionate commitment. Anyone who shares his love of fly fishing and the speckled trout will revel in his portrayal of the beauty and history of our glorious sport." (Paul Volcker). "This unique portrait of Catskill mountains and rivers reveals the stunning natural beauty and spirit of adventure that has inspired generations of anglers to lead in conserving this outstanding natural resource. A great book has been hatched here." (Larry Rockefeller). "A sumptuous visual and verbal feast for all who would know the magic of Catskill rivers, and their textured traditions." (Nick Lyons). "Land of Little Rivers is a treasure, a beautiful book, eloquently, wonderfully written, and movingly illustrated - it will be an instant classic. (Dan Rather). (Previous price £80.00).

Roaming over an area of 500 square miles, the Rudraprayag leopard brought terror to the inhabitants of Garhwal for eight years, and year after year all efforts to kill it failed. On and off, Jim Corbett stalked it during the last two years of its career, finally destroying it at the end of an uninterrupted ten week pursuit."
