Overview

Excerpt from Fishing in Eden, a Record of Fifty Years With Rod and Line in the Valleys of the Eden and Eamont: To Which Are Added Some Practical Notes on Flies and Tackle

In days not far distant the exile from Westmorland was accustomed to hear expressions of sympathy because he had left behind him the beauties of the Lake Country. It now becomes more generally known that he has a claim to sympathy on other grounds. There is a part of Westmorland outside the Lake District which has an abiding charm and interest of its own. The following chapters deal with that part of Westmorland - the Upper Eden Valley - mainly, but by no means only, from the point of view of the fisherman.

I can claim no inner knowledge of that perplexing art, and must leave it to the expert to appraise the value of the maxims and suggestions contained in the book. From long and intimate knowledge of the writer I shall be surprised if, dealing with a subject of which he has life-long experience, he is not practical in matters of detail and stimulative and suggestive in matters of principle.
