Pub. Date:
In 1890, Mary Orvis Marbury - daughter of the founder of The Orvis Company - wrote to anglers all over the country soliciting information on their favourite flies and how they were to be made and used. Her inquiries resulted in publishable responses from more than two hundred fly fishermen in thirty-eight states. Marbury compiled these responses to form this book, first published in 1892. Favourite Flies went through nine printings by 1896 - a fishing best-seller even by today's standards.
