    I do agree with you Caddis Fan about spiders needing some meat on them. 8 barbs is ridiculous. Eleven is the correct number.
    Happy birthday Bill You wont be disappointed its a good book. I took the peasant covered 25 one. I might have stretched to 650 but 795 a little too much for me. 11 barbs you say? dammit ill have to go cut a few off my flies now, i cant go presenting my over dressed monstrosities to those lovely brownies.

    Lovely book, beautifully presented, heavyweight research and clearly written with pride. Not all the flies are Rob's , as far as i know, but some great pics there . Deffo one for the Spiders fans.

    It is indeed a lovely book, sometimes in the age of e-books it is easy to forget the pleasure that you can get just from the sheer weight and quality of a nicely made book. A very interesting tome , with nice photography and illustrations, I'm just browsing though it at the moment ( waiting for the boxing to start on ITV )

    What's happened to North Country Angler?

    His status appears to have changed to guest!

    Just received a copy of this book for my birthday and at first glance I have to reinforce what others have said in that lokks to be a very comprehensive piece if writing on the subject of north country flies with some fantastic photos.
