1997 wurde mit Richard Hoffmanns Fischers' Craft and Lettered Art: Tracts on Fishing from the End of the Middle Ages ein Buch veröffentlicht, dessen zögerlich formulierte - in seiner Essenz aber gewagte These - die uns bis dahin übermittelte Geschichte des Fliegenfischens von Grund auf verändern würde.
