Just started reading The Book Of The Dry Fly (1910) by George Albemarle Bertie Dewar Duke of Rutland . Although early in the book I find it amusing how way back in 1895 -96 he makes several references to conservation over across the pond. Also I find very interesting the reference to Dry versus Wet fly fishing. How the anglers think of each others style of fishing . So far a very good read .

I have that one too….
As a next contemporary read 1912. Practical dry fly fishing by emlyn m gill
I look online ( eBay) at used bookstores and just keep the feelers out. You kinda have to stumble on these little treasures…. Old books ( if its not a seminal title or highly collectible ) can be had for very little $$$$
For a five spot if the books a bust no biggie
DFG I came across the book by internet . I think I saw the book in a picture that someone posted . I believe it was a bamboo rod maker. He had the rod resting on the book in his picture. So I figured I would research it . I know you can go to a site and download the original books for free . I will try and get the site again. The site has books that were printed in the 1800’s . You can get the book I have in reprint for nearly nothing on Amazon.
Marty thanks for the suggestion I am on it .
