I stumbled across the Fishing Museum online site. They have a section for downloading digitized text from the old masters.
Site is at:

Included are
Halford - Floating Flies and How to Dress Them 1886
Ogden - Ogden on Fly Tying 1887
and others.
I'm generally not a fan of e-readers (my wife owns a bookstore), but I found it an interesting read. Plus the images of the pages, not e -text was easier to read.

Respect someones else's ideas. We are all different people. Your way is not the only way.

Never argue with a self proclaimed expert
