As it has now become an angling classic, it is

necessary- only to welcome the appearance of a new edition of Lord Grey's Fly Fishing (Dent, 10s. 6d.) and to note that it contains two fresh chapters, one on Spring Salmon-fishing an the Cassley in Sutherland, and the other entitled Retrospect. In the latter it is sad to read that " it is twelve years since I have been able to see my fly fall on the water or to watch the line." Dry-fly for this accomplished angler and instructor of anglers is therefore impossible, but salmon- fishing is still left to him and some of the pleasures of trouting with the wet. The wood-engravings of Mr. Eric Dogfish are a very notable ornament of the book.
