A HANDBOOK OF ANGLING:

TEACHING

FLY-FISHING, TROLLING, BOTTOJI-FISHING, AND

SALMON-FISHING.

WITH THE

NATURAL HISTORY OF RIVER FISH, AND THE BEST MODES OF

CATCHING THEM, Second Edition. Fcp. 8vo. with Wood Engravings, 98. “ A work which reflects very great credit upon the piscatorial research, diligence, and skill of its author, with whom it has evidently been a labour of love.' Not only does it abound in racy anecdote and pleasant gossip, but in valuable and curious instruction concerning the finny tribe, and the best method of enticing them from their watery abode. No person who is fond of angling should be without this excellent and amusing guide.”

United Service Gazette. “ By combining valuable information respecting the construction and use of the several kinds of fishing-tackle with interesting memoirs of the habits and haunts of every variety of river fish, the 'Handbook of Angling’ recommends itself equally to the young and the experienced sportsman. To make his work a standard one also, · Ephemera' has very judiciously selected and embodied in it the opinions and practice of several other masters of the art; and altogether we know no other work where so much varied information connected with the subject can be so readily obtained." Pictorial Times.

BY HEWETT WHEATLEY, ESQ., Senior Angler.

Lately published,
THE ROD AND LINE:

OR,

PRACTICAL HINTS AND DAINTY DEVICES FOR THE SURE TAKING OF TROUT, GRAYLING, &c.

Fcp. 8vo. with Nine coloured Plates, 10s. 6d. “ Besides smart, pungent, and practically profound dissertations on the rod and line, this clever volume teems with practical hints, and has numerous coloured plates of dainty devices for the sure taking of trout, grayling, &c.' Several of the devices, though of very dainty appearance, will, we are certain, prove of most deadly effect. They are especially suited for the wholesale capture of grayling.

The book is very pleasantly written, and beneath a semblance of levity will be found enunciated a mass of sterling information."

Bel's Life in London. “ The style in which this little volume has been written is no less attractive to the man of taste and education than the matter it contains is interesting to the experienced angler.

The angler who does not require to learn the rudiments of his art will find in its pages abundance of useful informa. tion respecting the various kinds of spinning tackle, and some excellent hints on beetles, grubs, and larva, with which the author has succeeded in killing fish when the fly thrown by the most experienced hand would fail to do

The hints on angling at the end of the volume are written with great humour, and indicate some excellent maxims which the fair sportsman will not be likely to forget.

NEW WORK BY EPHEMERA AND ANDREW YOUNG.

Just published,

THE BOOK OF THE SALMON:

IN TWO PARTS. Part I. · The Theory, Principles, and Practice of Fly-Fishing

for Salmon ; with Lists of good Salmon-Flies for every good

River in the Empire. Part II. — The Natural History of the Salmon, all its known

Habits described, and the best Way of artificially Breeding it explained.

USEFULLY ILLUSTRATED WITH NUMEROUS COLOURED ENGRAVINGS

OP SALMON-FLIES AND SALMON-FRY

BY EPHEMERA,
Author of “ A Handbook of Angling ;" assisted by

ANDREW YOUNG,
Of Invershin, Manager of the Duke of Sutherland's Salmon-Fisheries.

Fcp. 8vo, with coloured Plates, price 14s.

“The book is writtenļin an easy conversational style; and the directions for procuring materials, and dyeing feathers for the construction of Aies - by far the most important things for a salmon fisher - are succinct, and intelligible to every one: and · Ephemera’ is certainly not wrong when he says the list of flies described is the largest and best ever published. The work is an excellent continuation of the Handbook of Angling, and ought to be bound up with it, and carried about in the portmanteau of every lover of the angle.”

Observer. “ Having treated successfully of the lower branches of angling, ' Ephemera' has now taken in hand the noble and exciting pastime of salmon-fishing. Assuming the reader to have read and profited by his former book, the author gives little elementary instruction; confining his directions to the peculiar differences in throwing the fly and handling the rod for salmon, compared with trout, &c. He then furnishes practical advice as to the rod and line itself, the best modes of fishing a river, the way to manage and land the king of fishes when you have hooked him, together with an elaborate account of various flies, illustrated by coloured plates. The directions are somewhat minute, which the author intended; but they are clear, colloquial, and keep up the attention of the reader. The history of the salmon forms a second part, the substance of which is by Mr. Young, though the writing is by. Ephemera.' It contains Mr. Young's views on the natural of the fish, especially its breeding, and growth during early life.”
