Sunshine and the Dry Fly

2024 Centenary Extended Special Edition

ByJ. W. DunneGuy Inchbald

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
J.W. Dunne's Sunshine and the Dry Fly is one of the great classics of fly-fishing. First published in 1924, it was written as much to engage and enthuse as to inform, and it succeeded. Its author went down in history as “one of the prophets of old.” The book breaks down into two halves, the first describing the art of dry-fly fishing for trout, the flies they eat and his efforts to develop artificial copies, the second a primer on how to make these copies for yourself. This extended third edition is published in its 100th year. It includes a number of lost and hard-to-find treasures, not least two short but lyrical essays aimed at the beginner, recipes for four more dry flies which he had intended for the second edition but mislaid, more complete detail on his fly-dressing materials and three unique archive images.
