Tegernsee Bavarian Pike Fly

Fifteenth-century Bavarian manuscript, translated into English by Professor RICHARD C. HOFFMANN,
and called "Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art" (Tracts on Fishing from the End of the Middle Ages)
Monks and peasants share responsibility for a text known only from thirteen leaves of a single manuscript volume.
It is not a whole book, not a booklet, and not even titled; an accurate label is simply ′Tegernsee Fishing Advice,′

"...The second hook should be tied after "grass fly" for the pike.
The feathering should be of all different sorts mixed together, with lead coloured and light blackish
and ash coloured (and) therein a black feather, with the silk pale coloured and around the "heart" black light blue silk, around the "stingel" pinkish - coloured silk."

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
