Synopsis
In his intro to this first American edition of Mottrams writings, Paul Schullery praises Mottrams "enthusiastic voice, ceaseless curiosity, & intuitive sense of how things worked." Schullery concludes that Mottram, who was rare among early angling authorities in actually being scientifically trained, "applied a disciplined understanding of natures subtlety and complexity to the study of the trouts world." That he was also a lively and inventive storyteller only adds to the value of his work today. 10 B&W photos; 4x6 inches, 160 pgs.

James Mottram wrote at the height of great intellectual turmoil in the world of British fly fishing, when advocates of dry-fly fishing quarreled with their nymph-fishing counterparts over which type of fishing was not only more effective but also more "appropriate" on Englands famous chalkstreams. Mottram stepped into this bitter controversy with writings that calmly considered the strengths, weaknesses, and prospects of all fly-fishing methods.
