This resplendent print—to me, one of the most beautiful in all of flyfishing—is from the 6th edition of Alfred Ronalds The Fly-Fishers Entomology, published in 1862. It wasn’t a feature of the first edition, but it was included by the fourth, published in 1849. Regardless, in showcasing the gamefish of the English chalkstreams (Brown trout, Grayling, and Atlantic salmon) the colors and detail are fabulous. Click image to enlarge.
