    Default OLD FASHION WISDOM - Neil - Nov 5, 2012

    OLD FASHION WISDOM


    My nephew is a bibliophile when it comes to angling literature. Recently he loaned me a book from his extensive collection, a facsimile reproduction of The Experienced Angler printed in 1662 by Colonel Robert Venables. The subtitle of the book is Angling Improved, Being a general discourse of Angling. The original was printed for Richard Marriot, and were sold at his shop in St. Dunstan's Church-yard, Fleet Street.

    Neil -

    Your article was a really fun read. So many things about fly angling that have endured for centuries, and hopefully will for many more.
