J. R. Harris is an angler and a systematic naturalist – a cheerful mixture, and one that is in no way targeted, for angler-naturalists are one of the pillars of the British average history.

Anglers, of all human teams dedicated to a pastime or a activity, are probably the main strongly keen about their profession and with all that belongs to it. certainly, the truth that carrying fish feed essentially upon bugs and will be stuck through units which simulate those bugs, has been the root for a systematic literature and an both wonderful demonstrate of invention in fly-tying.

Nevertheless, whereas anglers have consistently 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, fairly sufficient illustrations – either in color, by means of T. O. Ruttledge, and in black-and-white – and a very sufficient textual content are supplied, during which all levels of the entire vital angler’s flies will be pointed out, even if the angler fishes in eire, Scotland, Wales or England.

Furthermore, Mr Harris has rationalised the nomenclature of the flies with no breaking with culture, in order that while anglers from eire and England meet and talk about different forms of nymphs, duns and spinners, they could, with using this publication, be rather yes accurately what it truly is they're speaking approximately. The writers of the earlier weren't consistently particularly so sure, for they weren't armed with color images or with the most recent advancements in entomology.

We consider confident that this publication will wake up a brand new severe perform, and learn of what's relatively the main attention-grabbing a part of angling. additional, will probably be of curiosity to a large circle of naturalists past the anglers and the entomologists.
