"Fly Fishing in Wonderland"
You know, its been said that if you want a new idea, read an old book. We couldn't agree more. Many great ideas keep coming back over and over.
Some of the early fly fisherman, people like John Beever, John Lyle King, Major G. Baille, James Tayler, Geroge LeBranche and Frank Fayle to name a few, all have great stories to tell about fly fishing for trout. We can learn from them tips on tying flies, locating trout, and tips on observing nature in and about the streams and rivers. And you can learn how to catch more fish.
You will find listed in our books hundreds of flies and the materials used to tie them. Many in these books are still tied and used by anglers today. Imagine that flies developed 100-150 years ago still being used by today's fisherman. You may discover a "formula" for a fly not being used today that could be "new" again and prove to be killer on trout.
Appreciate the History Of Our Sport
Reading these old books gave me an appreciation for those who came before me and for how they did things. 100 years ago they didn't have graphite rods and fancy reels or any of the high tech fly lines we have today. Their gear was simplistic by today's standards, but they caught a lot of trout.
I began to understand that we don't need to go out and buy every latest piece of equipment invented in order to have a great time on the water. The key is not the equipment, but our keen observations that will enable us to catch more and bigger fish. Knowing where to find them and how to present the fly are the keys to catching more and bigger fish. These books are all about that.
TIP- One author points out that to cast a long distance on the water to reach a fish feeding on the other side of the river, we are casting over many fish that are within easy reach. If you take the time to observe the water before getting in, you will be amazed at what you may learn that will help you. Like where the trout are!

"Practical Fly Fishing"
By John Beever (1849)
The old saying " The more things change, the more they stay the same ", is certainly true of this book. Our equipment has certainly changed and improved, but it ultimately comes down to us, our flies, and the fish. Written over 150 years ago, you will be surprised how "current" some of the authors fly fishing tips are today.
"Practical Fly-Fishing was founded on nature and tested by the experience of nearly forty years in various parts of the United Kingdom. With instructions for imitating all the most useful flies and also remarks on fly-rods and the best woods for them and the best way of making them." Although the materials used to fly fish for trout have changed, the trout, their behaviors, and the methods used to fish for them, have changed little.
I leave you with a statement by Mr. Beever which gives you a sense of the man and his commitment to learning and his unpretentiousness about his knowledge of Fly Fishing. " I put before you my principles, and give you my experience. If you can improve upon either, do so by all means."
"Trouting on the Brule River"
By John Lyle King (1880)
This wonderful book is about three lawyers from Chicago, that plan a vacation fishing for trout on the Brule River. This was, buy the way, a series of featured articles in the Chicago Sunday Times later made into a book. They kept wonderful details of their trip for the newspaper.
A quote from the book says it all. "When the haunts of game in the woods and the lairs of fish in the streams incite the passion for sport to couple itself with the quest and yearning for rest and vitalization, the wayfarer's pathway in the wilderness becomes a pilgrimage through abounding scenes of diversion and into a realm of fascination. The restraints and stress of civilization and the city, for the time, are exchanged for exhilaration freedom and simplicity of nature." The author gives fly fishing tips on how they caught a lot of trout.
The wildlife is extraordinary in this area and even today in northern Michigan you can take canoe trips down the Ausable River and others. The fishing is great and the scenery is beautiful. We loved this book and we hope that you do to.
"A Chat About Dry Fly Fishing"
By Major G. Baille (1921)
"Fly fishing in a clear, low water is beyond comparison, the most difficult of all the branches of the angler's art, and should therefore rank highest as sport,"
"This small book on dry fly angling is intended for would-be dry fly sportsmen, who, owing to real or imaginary difficulties, may be somewhat timid about commencing ; if it should be the means of encouraging some to take up one of the most healthy and delightful of sports, my object will have been attained."
"There are three essentials which a dry fly angler must possess so as to thoroughly enjoy and be successful in this form of trout fishing :- 1. Patience, 2. Love of Nature, And 3. A System. The author gives wonderful fly fishing tips that will enable anyone to get started in this fantastic sport.
By James Tayler (1888)
Here is a review from "Land and Water"; of this fine book; "This unpretentious, yet well written, work contains a large amount of fly fishing tips, which may be read with advantage by all followers of the more refined branch of the gentle art."
Mr. Tayler writes "A knowledge of the habits of trout is very essential, and this knowledge can only be acquired by careful observation. The largest fish are generally to be found where they can obtain the best supply of food- such points as just below sharp bends of the stream, behind large stones or other obstructions, at the head or tail of deep pools, and on the margin of swift currents, or under overhanging banks; and , if you take a good fish at any particular spot, you will probably find, a day or two afterwards, that the next best fish in that locality has taken the place of the one you captured."
"Everything combines to render fly-fishing the most attractive of all branches of the angler's art. The attempt to capture trout, which are seen to rise at natural flies, is in itself an excitement which no other method possesses. Then the smallness of the hook and the fineness of the tackle necessary for success increases the danger of escape, and consequently the excitement and the pleasure of the capture; and for our own part, we would rather hook, play, and capture a trout of a pound weight with fly, then one of a pound and a half with minnow,"
"A Day's Angling On The Almond"
By Frank Fayle (1862)
Frank Fayle writes about one of his favorite rivers in Scotland, the Almond. The river is full of trout and yet they are very difficult to catch because of the constant fishing pressure. He gives tips on how to approach the Almond in great detail and about the equipment he used. The tips recommended by him are techniques that can be used by today's anglers in your favorite streams and rivers!
"The Almond, as an angling river, ought to stand high in the scale of trouting streams. Many look upon it, however, with the purest contempt ; and would consider a day spent there so much lost time. But we appeal to those who value the contents of a basket less by its weight than by the amount of skill requisite to fill one." This was and is a difficult river to fish well.
This book A Day's Angling on the Almond is a wonderful book and I hope you read it. It was a small book, designed to fit into a vest pocket as many were of that time, and was suggested to be carried with you while fishing so that you could refer to it when needed.
