Example text

The earliest known fly fisher (though at any time an earlier reference may be discovered) in the New World was, appropriately, a British visitor: Joseph Banks, a young naturalist who visited Labrador and Newfoundland in . Banks would eventually become a leading naturalist and president of the Royal Society, but all that was before him on this trip, as he hoped to take enough specimens and do enough study to establish himself in science. Fishing historian David Ledlie recently noticed in Banks’s journals (not published until ) that the young scholar collected his fish specimens with flies.

Early American Trout Fishing  41 Then from an  correspondent from New Hampshire, writing to the Turf Register to complain that British flies were worthless for “catching Yankee trout”: I soon ascertained that the patent English line and artificial fly would not do. Our fish are too Republican, or too shrewd, or too stupid, to understand the science of English trout fishing. I therefore took the common hook and worm, with a simple line and light sinker, and a rod cut on the spot; they then understood, and we readily caught in a short time, twenty-three fine brook Trout.

The Treatise personifies the original expert—the first to publish a handbook, and thus the first to give promise of relieving the fisherman’s bewilderment. Furthermore, even the Treatise, the supposed Old Testament of the sport, tantalizes us with lost lore, at one point vaguely citing unnamed “bokes of credence” as among the sources for its The Fisherman’s Chaucer  25 knowledge. ” I agree that most of the Treatise was probably based on oral tradition, but McDonald risks slighting what might be an important heads-up to us; the Treatise could really be telling us that we have not yet seen everything there is to see in early fishing writing.
