Classic Fly Fishing Books From

What did the early writers and fly anglers know? You'll be surprised on what they knew and how advanced their techniques, methods, observations and fly tying abilitites were! My friend Lefty Kreh once told me that there's really not that much new in fly just gets recycled! After you read a few of these books you'll find that to be true. The texts are from the 1600's to the early 1950's. Most of them are fly fishing books but I've also thrown in a few old entomology texts (with great color plates) and some general books on Salmon and Trout culture as well as the classics like Henshall's Black Bass Fishing. I acutally lied in the promo for these books because there are more than 200 hundred books all in PDF (Acrobat Reader) on this DVD. I've also included 6 new Windows Fishing and Outdoor Screensavers.   Notice you are getting both of the Classic Works by Skues: Minor Tactics on a Trout Stream and The Way of a Trout with a Fly. This DVD also includes The Practical Angler by Stewart. This book is considered by many as one of the best wet fly fishing books ever written. Also, I have included the classic by Halford, Floating Flies which is the original work that started it all for Dry Fly Fishing. Here are some other titles on this DVD:

  • Dry Fly and Fast Water by Labranche
  • Wet Fly Fishing by Tod
  • Fly Fisher's Entomology by Ronalds
  • The Compleat Angler by Walton
  • Secrets of the Salmon by Hewitt
  • Salmon Fly How to Dress It by Kelson
  • How To Fish The Dry Fly by Rhead
  • Blacker's Art of Fly Making
  • Chalk Stream and Moorland by Russel
  • British Angling Flies by Theakston
  • Clear Water by Bradley
  • Fishing with Floating Flies by Orvis
  • Practical Dry Fly Fishing by Gill
  • The History of Fly Fishing for Trout by Gill
  • Yorkshire Trout Flies by Pritt
  • The Adventures of Salmon in the River Dee

There are also some old scientific writings and a couple of books on old English Fishing laws. You'll be amazed at what was written and is often over looked and how some of these fly anglers were already concerned about conservation and ecology back then.

Let's take a look at few of the color plates in some of these books. Try these on for size:

It would cost you thousands of dollars and would take up a quite a bit of space in your house to shelve all of these books.  That's if you could even find many of them!  So at less than 20 cents a piece on one DVD you can own such a library. These works are truly great and the amount of fly fishing knowledge, fly tying patterns, history, and fishing methods are a life time of work that you'll have at your disposal.

The price of the DVD and Screensavers was listed at $49.95 but I am having an introductory offer of $39.95 and FREE SHIPPING. This offer is only good in the continental US.  And I will ship either by first class or UPS. And remember the money goes to help me keep fighting the fight for our streams.
