The Fly is Up
by Terry Lawton
The Fly is Up is the story of fly fishing in times different from today: of friendship and prolific fly hatches. Before the Mayfly hatch the season opened with the grannom. This fly’s fluctuating fortunes show how sensitive wildlife is to man’s management of rivers. The Fly is Up is more than the history of three famous fly hatches. It is a story of man’s inter-action with the natural environment.
