Hawthorn Fly Fishing & Angling Collection

The Library of the University of British Columbia has an excellent collection of books on angling and fly-fishing, known as the Harry Hawthorn Collection. At present it totals more than 2200 books, including many rare and valuable items. This Collection came about as the result of a fishing holiday in 1953 by eight UBC professors and Roderick Haig-Brown at Upper Campbell Lake.

This online representative sampling of titles from the collection is made possible by a generous gift from the Harry Hawthorn Foundation.
