The nineteenth-century American writer Theodore Gordon wrote `it is impossible to grow weary of a sport that is never the same on any two days of the year'. It is this enthusiasm for the sport that H. Cholmondeley-Pennell, one of Britain's most famous nineteenth-century naturalists, conveys in this comprehensive guide to fly fishing, one of its very first `manuals'. From deciding upon the most suitable gear to tips on may-fly and bait fishing, Cholmondeley-Pennell gives practical advice to inspire both the experienced angler and the occasional hobbyist. H. Cholmondeley-Pennell was a renowned British naturalist of the nineteenth century. An editor and occasional contributor to Punch, he was known for publishing widely upon both coarse and fly fishing.
