The brook trout has long held a special place in the hearts and minds of anglers. This volume, a collection from the pens of a number of well known writers of the time, begins with general information on the wily Salvelinus fontinalis, before moving on to discuss habitat and habits, angling methods and finally culinary considerations.
Lavishly illustrated with turn of the century line drawings.
The authors explore why will one angler will whip a stream successfully and his partner come home light? Of two men in a boat, why will one take ten to the other's none?
This softbound edition reproduces "The Speckled Brook Trout" first published in 1902 in an effort to continue to bring classic, antiquarian sporting books to a wider audience than could possibly be reached by access only to those remaining copies of originally published work
