About the Driffield Dun Trout Fly
The Driffield Dun is named after the water on which it was first intended to be fished, the 'Driffield Beck' which is a chalk stream in the north of England.
You must not use the aforesaid artful sport for covetousness, merely for the increasing or saving of your money, but mainly for your enjoyment and to procure the health of your body and, more especially, of your soul.
