A Summer on the Test: A Classic of Modern Fly-Fishing Literature
Publisher: Aquarium Audio Books
Date: May 2013
Duration: 6 hours 54 minutes
First published in 1924, A Summer on the Test remains an essential read for fly fishermen. No author has surpassed the Right Honourable John Waller Hills' description of classic chalk stream fishing, or indeed knew more about the history of the sport. The Test is a river much affected by decline and deterioration, with the days of crystal clear waters and plentiful brown trout seemingly impossible to recover. A Summer on the Test reflects on the golden age giving an estimation of what it was once like and what we have lost.
