the author is robert smith published in 2015Is that Edmonds & Lee? Or Pritt? I have the latter and I consider it an excellent read. I'm almost certain that the former was recommended some time ago by Oliver Edwards and that is good enough for me. I have it in mind to buy a first edition sometime.
It is an excellent book doobry. I highly recommend it. Every page is worth reading, you won’t put it down until you have got to the end. Very well written by a man who has the skill to do the proper research and put it all together in a very readable definitive reference work. Get Robert’s address and buy it direct - he will message and sign it for you, I am sure - if you ask nicely. Tell him I sent youthe author is robert smith published in 2015
If you look on you tube Robert is doing a series of tying videos of some of the flies in Pritt .It's a good reference book and for those interested in the history and origins of north country fly patterns. Robert has collated all works on the subject, put right some wrongs/errors.
