The Book of Pike (II) by Henry Cholmondeley-Pennell’

A while back I found a flip book on the Internet called “THE BOOK OF THE PIKE” by ‘Onnie Warren Smith’ and found it quite an interesting read. Well, I have found another with the same name but by a gentleman called ‘Henry Cholmondeley-Pennell’ written in 1865. His love of pike fishing is evident in his writings and there are a number of wonderfully drawn images of tackle he used through out the book as well. He mentions Pike on the fly all be it 2 pages worth but his drawing of a pike fly he used - to some moderate success I might add, particularly interesting.
