1 Schullery, Paul; (editor) Royal Coachman : The Lore and Legends of Fly-Fishing
New York Simon & Schuster 1999 0684842467 / 9780684842462 First Edition, First Printing Cloth Fine Near Fine 
224 pp. Dustjacket: Price clipped. Paul Schullery's Royal Coachman is a book about the lore, lure, and history of fly-fishing. ‘Fly-fishing is this great adventure we have in a thousand little episodes,’ he says, and in this book he writes about some of them with charm and wit. Reflecting on the history of the sport, from its reputed origins in Europe centuries past (and casting a suspicious eye on the so-called first fly-fishing author, who published five hundred years ago) to its more recent history in the United States (where, says Schullery, the founding fathers might have ventured out to Philadelphia's streamside banks for a little relaxation), Schullery recounts some of his own experiences as well as those of some of fly-fishing's legendary and quirky practitioners. ‘Knowing more about early American trout fishing only allows me to stretch that connection back further, to give me even more stories to remember, and more dreams to share,’ he writes. Schullery celebrates some lesser-known fishermen and some seldom-appreciated waters, such as the limestone streams of Pennsylvania. He muses on the pursuit of the ever-more perfectly ‘natural’ fly and contrasts that quest with the storied success of the royal coachman, perhaps the gaudiest fly ever invented. He writes about rods, about his fellow fishing writers, about fishing etiquette, and about the true definition of a ‘trout bum’ (his requirements are surprisingly rigorous). He compares trout fishing in the East with trout fishing in the Rockies, both of which he has done for extended periods of time. This is an irresistible book, written with grace, humor, and intelligence. Trout magazine called Schullery ‘our preeminent angling historian’ while the Los Angeles Times referred to him as ‘a keen raconteur’ and Newsweek dubbed him fly-fishing's ‘gentle ironist.’ Royal Coachman is his finest book yet.
