J. R. Harris is an angler and a systematic naturalist – a contented mixture, and one that is under no circumstances detailed, for angler-naturalists are one of the pillars of the British ordinary history.
Anglers, of all human teams dedicated to a pastime or a recreation, are might be the main strongly passionate about their profession and with all that belongs to it. certainly, the truth that wearing fish feed essentially upon bugs and will be stuck by way of units which simulate those bugs, has been the root for a systematic literature and an both dazzling exhibit of invention in fly-tying.
Nevertheless, whereas anglers have continually been drawn to the medical foundation of simulation of the bugs as lures for fish, not one of the many books on angling which were released have ever dealt satisfactorily with the angler’s entomology in all its features. during this publication, for the 1st time, relatively enough illustrations – either in color, by means of T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a very sufficient textual content are supplied, in which all phases of all of the vital angler’s flies should be pointed out, no matter if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.
Furthermore, Mr Harris has rationalised the nomenclature of the flies with out breaking with culture, in order that while anglers from eire and England meet and speak about different types of nymphs, duns and spinners, they could, with using this booklet, be fairly convinced accurately what it really is they're speaking approximately. The writers of the prior weren't continually particularly so definite, for they weren't armed with color images or with the newest advancements in entomology.
We believe confident that this publication will wake up a brand new severe perform, and research of what's particularly the main interesting a part of angling. additional, it will likely be of curiosity to a large circle of naturalists past the anglers and the entomologists.
