"...Flies, that is, the kind we are going to write of here and the kind we use for fishing, in our efforts to deceive fish, have always occupied a leading position as a subject for discussion or argument whenever and wherever fishermen have gotten together.
Flies, their pattern and styles, their virtues and vices, their good points and bad points and the manner of their use or uselessness, have always comprised a considerable portion of angling literature -- past and present -- and they will in the future.
The fishing flies as we know them today are the result of evolution, rather than the invention or creation of any given person or period. Every generation of anglers has made its contribution to the array of patterns now in use.
Many patterns, both imitations and fancy, carry names other than those descriptive of the fly, which names arouse interest and speculation. It is of such flies that this is written..." -- from the author's Foreword.
