A classic collection of writing by the father of American fly fishing, now in a beautiful collector's edition. "The best thing about Gordon," writes editor John McDonald, in his introduction to this classic book, "is that he wrote well and with remarkable knowledge about contemporary fly fishing." Theodore Gordon was a reclusive writer who fished in the Catskills of upstate New York. He adapted British methods of fly-tying to match the kinds of insects that could be found in America. As John McDonald said in his book, Quill Gordon, "[Gordon] represents the major figure in the transition from wet to dry-fly fishing in the United States." Originally published in 1947, this book contains Gordon's finest essays, articles, and letters, carefully compiled by John McDonald. This special collectors' edition includes a faux leather package with gilded embossed lettering and a ribbon marker, as well as a new foreword by Nick Lyons, and a section of newly found materials introduced by Ed Van Put.
