"This was the standard textbook of the late
eighteenth and early nineteenth century,
initially credited to Richard Bowlker and then
running to many editions under the guidance
of his son Charles. The son was considered
the most ﬁnished ﬂy-ﬁsher of his day. For such
a small volume it is very wide-ranging, with more
advice on the choice of tackle than on tactics, and
with much of the material taken from seventeenth
century writers. It is an important milestone in
popular angling literature [Westwood & Satchell]."
