A beautifully produced facsimile of Dimock's classic 1911 book on tarpon fishing. This one has been supplemented with a 22 page partial tarpon bibliography which updates Louis Babcock's, a new foreword by Thomas McGuane, and an introduction by Bernard "Lefty" Kreh. The hand-tied fly by Kreh is to the pattern of one of the earliest effective tarpon lures. A very nice item.
