KIRKUS REVIEW

An American fly-fishing classic, published in 1914 is here expanded by the addition of a limited edition item, 1924, containing the often discussed but rarely seen chapter on Casting the Curve. Mr. LaBranche's special claim to fame. With plenty of personal experience and anecdotal material, he discusses dry fly fishing for trout and for salmon, with a good deal of technical how-to-do-it data thrown in for good measure. For fisherman- particular dry fly addicts- this should be enticing reading. And there is plenty of timeless information here, as valuable today as when the book appeared.
