Mary Orvis Marbury was the daughter of Charles Orvis, founder of the famous fly-fishing tackle company that is still a leading name in top-quality gear.

The prints on this page are from Marbury's Favourite Flies and their Histories, 1892. In 1890, Marbury solicited information from seasoned anglers from coast-to-coast on their favourite flies and compiled the results in this volume, released two years later. It offers descriptions and reproductions of 300 flies, broken down by geographic area and fishing conditions. Though more than a century has passed, these patterns remain effective for catching fish.
