The Dry Fly & Fast Water and The Salmon & The Dry Fly / La Branche

Book Description: Arno Press, New York, 1967. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Dust Jacket . The Abercrombie & Fitch Library. 5-3/4 x 8-3/4", one-half off-white linen cloth with black title label, green paper over boards, 252pp. Originally published in 1914, his book "was written to fill a need created by the coming of the brown trout to America. The British flies and methods which followed it over here proved inapplicable, as the native brook-trout flies and methods proved inadequate to the taking of the newcomer in our water. So it remained for George La Branche to promulgate a new, distinctively American school of dry-fly angling, and the proof of its validity is that today it is universally practised here." $35.00
