Here’s a piece on grayling by Brian Clark in the London Times Online that leads to an interesting biography of Francis Maximilian Walbran of Leeds. “Walbran’s writings brought him into contact with the most famous southern anglers, including Frederic Halford, William Senior, Major Anthony Carlisle and the enigmatic George Selwyn Marryat, collaborator in the researches for Halford’s greatest books, Floating Flies and how to Dress Them (1886), and the monumentally important Dry Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice (1889).”
