The Classic Guide to Fly Fishing - Ed. H. Cholmondeley-Pennell
This book is actually a reprint of a volume from "The Badminton Library (of Sport and Pastimes)" though the text is slightly abridged and many of the illustrations omitted. In its original form, this was the volume on Salmon and Trout Fishing, edited by Pennell but with contributions from three other authors, including Frederick Halford whose work on the "floating fly" is respected throughout angling literature.
A final note about where to find this Book of the Month. It's actually one of those books that turns up in the shoal of amusing/irritating/bizarre books that are sold in garden centres, and though the cover price is £9.99 you can expect to pay less than £5. Ideal for a stocking filler!
Book of the Month will be taking a rest in 2018, there are other projects within WVFFM that are going to need some attention, please keep an eye on "Latest News", but I hope this last year's selection has at least been interesting. Merry Christmas to all our readers!
