A new book.

Received my signed copy of Robert L Smith's book "The North Country Fly" a couple of weeks ago, and I must say it's a great book. I am completely surprised by all the information  that's in this new book. I tough that the books I have on North Country Flies were pretty complete. In this book you will find old list's of north country fly patterns from fly fishers living and fishing several hundred years ago in the many different dales of Yorkshire. Really got inspired reading this book and made me even more want to take a trip to the dales of north Yorkshire.         

The Little Black, one of the many patterns you can find in this great book about North Country Flies.
