This is a rare opportunity to own a very limited numbered copy of a new Australian fly fishing book
The new book by Jim Findlay and Peter Gibson adds much to our knowledge of the man and Australian angling history
“… For years after he arrived in Australia, Howard Joseland—the renowned architect, angler, artist, and author of Angling in Australia and Elsewhere—travelled to Tasmania and New Zealand in his quest to catch trout on fly. Then, in February 1901, he fished the Snowy River for the first time. He fell in love with the Monaro and its rivers, despite failing to catch trout on fly on either of his first two trips. He learned how to tie flies. He observed the insects in and around the waters he fished and tied patterns to imitate them. He worked hard to develop broader community interest in fly fishing and came to be regarded as the state’s leading fly fisher.
Stories often change through retelling, or are forgotten, or lost. Here, readers will rediscover the events of Joseland’s life in angling as published in the newspapers and magazines of the day—more than 260 texts in all—including his 39 angling columns from The Australian Sporting & Dramatic News and many feature articles….” Jim Findlay
