Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of La Branche's works, correspondence, a diary (1911), photographs, miscellaneous financial papers, and printed matter relating to angling. The collection contains fragments of his autograph manuscript The Salmon and the Dry Fly (1924) and correspondence with fellow anglers, especially George E. M. Skues of England, which reflect his expertise in dry fly fishing. The correspondence also refers to La Branche's other book, The Dry Fly and Fast Water (1914), the Fly Fishers Club (London), and the Anglers Club (New York), as well as to the many fishing trips he took to England and Scotland. A diary records the places he fished and kinds of fish caught during the summer of 1911.
