Excerpt from Floating Flies and How to Dress Them: A Treatise on the Most Modern Methods of Dressing Artificial Flies for Trout and Grayling

Before launching my little bark upon the open waters, I must perform the pleasant duty of acknowledging assistance received in the details of production. Publishers''are usually very loth to incur the responsibilities of bringing out works of this character, which entail much expense, and require great delicacy of management in several important particulars. Few persons can imagine the difficulties to be overcome, and I ''feel that not only my individual thanks, but possibly the thanks of the entire angling fraternity, are heartily due to Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, and in an especial degree to Mr. R. B. Marston, Editor of the Fishing Gazette, who took a deep personal interest in the progress of the venture. This firm not only undertook the heavy pecuniary liability and rendered me every assistance in their power, but gave me practically earle blame/w in arranging matters of detail with printers, engravers on stone and wood, andcolourists, each of whom has in his own particular calling successfully striven to convey accurately to the reader the Author''s ide''as.
