Excerpt from Rod and River, or Fly-Fishing for Salmon, Trout and Grayling As long as there are rivers, and fish in them, so long there will be fishermen. The brotherhood of anglers is large, and the methods they employ to catch fish many and various. It is my intention to treat of fishing for salmon, trout, and grayling only in the following pages, restricting myself to the consideration of these three varieties of the Salmonidae, their capture by means of the artificial fly, and the natural flies which form food for trout and grayling. Scores of books have from time to time been written on matters piscatorial, and it may be said, 'Still they come.' I have the audacity to add yet another volume to the long list of such works already existing. Fishermen are ever ready to peruse anything new in the way of fishing literature, despite the enormous mass which has been and is ever being published for their behoof.
