Fly Fishing Books: Unique Angling Literature Collection Up for Sale

British newspaperman Sir Jocelyn Stevens is selling one of the most complete collections of fine classic angling books ever to be put on the market. “One star item in Stevens’s angling library, which Bonhams believes will fetch upwards of £600,000 in total, is the fisherman’s bible – a first edition of Izaak Walton’s Compleat Angler published in 1653. There is also the world’s first ever printed book on fishing, Oppianus’ Halieutica, published in 1478, and printed in French.” Ian Watson on London’s TheBusinessOnline.com.
