Dictionary of Trout Flies

This book was written by A Courtney Williams in 1948 and contains a wealth of information about all the flies listed. It also covers Sea Trout and Grayling flies. If you decide to buy a copy try and get the sixth edition (paperback) 1986 as there is an additional section on modern flies (34 years ago now) written by T Donald Overfield.
This book has been my ‘Fly Bible’ for many years.

David,
Very interesting looking book! I have heard of it and its author but have never pursued it! Now, I have a reason to do so! Thanks for sparking my interest!

This great book, recommended to me by Davy Wotton as he taught me about wet fly fishing, is tremendously useful and informative.
