The fifth edition of Babcock’s classic work (first published in 1920). With a nostalgic preface, noting “Fifteen years have passed since the publication of the fourth edition of this book. … I have lost too many fish to assert any claim to infallibility. … I am grateful for the friendships which this little book has created and confirmed. No attempt has been made to interest the general reader. …”.
