  • "Anglers, young Anglers especially, are often at a loss to select a good list of killing flies for themselves, and it is to aid them in their choice that the list has been compiled... if the angler want to know more about the list of Flies I have given, or to learn how I recommend them to be dressed, he must consult my "Book of Angling" (Introduction, signed in ink by Francis). This copy has upwards of 70 actual flies.
