Frederic Halford is one of the greatest names in the history of modern fly fishing. His work pioneered the flies and techniques that we have come to accept as gospel. A shadow box of Halford's flies hangs on the wall of the Angler's Club of New York to this day.
The Dry-Fly Man's Handbook is Halford's most significant and complete statement covering everything from equipment to fishing techniques and basic entomology. Originally published in 1913, this book remains a classic of the sport and is a must in any fly fishing book collection.
"This work is still one of the finest technical books on fly fishing ever written." Chris Camuto, Gray's Sporting Journal
