Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of DECEIVING TROUT: The Flytier's Art - An international Guide by John Parsons, published by Airlife Publishing Ltd., Shrewsbury in 1988. Flies tied by John Morton and Brian Hussey.

The book is in very good condition (Clean grey cloth boards with gilt lettering on the spine), with minor wear to the illustrated dust jacket which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

A public-relations consultant, writer and professional photographer, John Parsons is under no illusions about the reason for his presence at Lake Taupo; he went there to be close to wild trout in beautiful country.

Luckily, he says, all kinds of kind people wanting to buy his services over the 15 years he's been in Taupo have made it possible for him to indulge his passion for trout fishing and remain solvent. This is his fourth fishing book. He has been writing about the many-splendoured world of freshwater sportfishing for 45 years.

"History and diagrams of twenty-five internationally renowned fly patterns including; Greenwell's Glory, Quill Gordon. Pue's Sedge, Coch y Bonddu, Muddler Minnow, Water Boatman. Sawyer's Pheasant Tail, Midge Pupa.

The art of deceiving trout has fascinated man for centuries. John Parsons has gathered his love of troutfishing, his fascination with the literature of the sport, and his writing and photography skills, into the making of this book on the 25 food-forms of trout and their imitation.

Superb examples of these 25 flies have been prepared by John Morton and Brian Hussey, leading exponents in the art of flytying - illustrated with full-colour photographs and step-by-step diagrams on how to tie them. This book will appeal, not only to the flytying enthusiast, but to everyone who fishes for trout with a fly."

174 pages. Illustrated with black & white line drawings and colour photographs within the text.
