Illustrated with a colour frontispiece, this is the second edition of barrister G. M. Skues' discussion of his 'nymph' fishing theories, tested on the chalk-streams in Hampshire.
First published in 1810, this was written during a time where the fishing field was embroiled in a 'wet versus dry' argument.
