American Fly Fishing: A History

Field & Stream Online Editors

There's yet a different view in American Fly Fishing: A History by Paul Schullery (278 pp.; 1987. Illustrated. Published by The Lyons Press. Hardcover, $40). It's sounds dry, but it's not. Schullery makes history fascinating, absorbing, and even funny at times. And remember: Before about 1850 almost all fishing (except by bait) was flyfishing.
