I'm unable to open the link. Would you care to provide a brief overview of what this is about?

YE GODS AND LITTLE FISHES
Highlights from the Angling Collections
of Lafayette College’s Skillman Library

Friday, January 10, 2014
10:00 am - 1:00 pm

In honor of the upcoming 2014 trout season, Skillman Library is pleased to offer up a catch of fine biblio-fish.

These tasteful delights come from Skillman’s three named angling collections—
the Conahay, Fox, and Tinsman Collections—as well as from recently acquired holdings. Please join us for a chance to see these exciting selections from our angling collections.

Highlights will include the magnificent etchings of D.R. Wakefield from his 1987 production, Some Trout , as well as examples of the most famous angling book of all time—Izaak Walton’s The Compleat Angler (first published in 1653), which is held by Skillman Library in more than 100 editions. Selections from the 500-volume Robert Tinsman Angling Collection will include classics of British and American angling and examples of some of the collection’s fine piscatorial bookbindings.

The Robert S. Conahay Jr. Collection (300 volumes) will be represented by notable works on Atlantic salmon, as well as examples of hand-tied salmon flies from Conahay’s collection of more than 700 flies tied in 470 different Atlantic salmon patterns. Titles from the collection of Lafayette alumnus and noted angler known as the “Dean of the Letort,” Charles K. Fox, Class of 1931, (200 volumes) will include his own works as well as others documenting the development of trout fly-fishing between 1930 and 1970. Other works will feature women anglers, angling literature, and fish-themed artists’ books.
