If you get a chance it is worthwhile to visit the Bruce Peel Special Collections to see a display of the Bruce Dancik collection of angling books.  It is located in the basement of Rutherford South.

I went yesterday with Florin and his dad, and was impressed with the collection.  Not only are there old books, some of which I had never heard of before and others that I have only read about, but there are "books" of flies and hackle plus other ephemera.  Fascinating if you love old books about angling.

 

Thanks to Florin for inviting me to visit this display with him.
