Default Blacker's Art of Fly Making

A little book that packed (and continues to pack) a big punch. There is one of the only 30-odd printed up for sale soon.

The REAL J R Hartley: Beautiful 170-year-old manual that brought fly fishing to the masses set to sell for thousands | Mail Online

It put fly fishing into the big time not only in Britain, but throughout the world, especially in America. Here is an American, Charles Dudley Warner, a friend of Mark Twain's, writing humorously about fly fishing for trout in 1878 - Fly-Fishing History: Battling Trout, ca. 1878 |

I like Warner's take on things that many of us are much too close to have any perspective on.
