He permit it or countenance it? Never. The bones of old Isaac Walton would move in his coﬃn in horror at the degeneration of his disciple! Early American Trout Fishing 41 Then from an correspondent from New Hampshire, writing to the Turf Register to complain that British ﬂies were worthless for “catching Yankee trout”: I soon ascertained that the patent English line and artiﬁcial ﬂy would not do. Our ﬁsh are too Republican, or too shrewd, or too stupid, to understand the science of English trout ﬁshing.
Flies were typically tied with a short “snell” of gut under the body; the snell, a few inches long at most, had a loop on its end, by which it was attached to the rest of the leader.

But as Hoﬀmann and others have pointed out, we are indeed in the realm of myth here. Fishing history, like most history, rests on a tangled web of belief systems, self perceptions, and romance, and mere facts just don’t compete.
