9780028616810: The New American Trout Fishing

A comprehensive and insightful guide to the art of fly fishing, The New American Trout Fishing provides a mix of advice and distilled science born of decades of experience and research by one of America's top fly fishermen. A short history of fly fishing in America is followed by a detailed, modern look at the ecology of American trout streams - essential information for anyone wishing to catch more and larger trout more often. The next six chapters provide extensive profiles of brook, brown, cutthroat, and rainbow trout, as well as a revealing and helpful look at the behavioral basis for the trouts' well-known tendency to feed selectively while often ignoring an angler's best efforts at catching them. There are detailed discussions on what's new in fly rods, lines, and leaders, along with instruction on specialized casting techniques tailored to what's newest in tackle. The fundamentals of aquatic entomology get a refreshing, new look, together with a review of fly tying in theory and practice. Additional and separate chapters provide detailed, on-the-stream directions for fishing major artificial-fly types - dry, wets, nymphs, emergers, streamers, and terrestrials. Advice on fishing special situations - small streams, high and low water - is followed by appendixes with instructions for tying the trout fisherman's essential knots, and the dressing for tying ninety-four of the most important trout flies - all shown in full color. Already acclaimed as the "ultimate answer book, " this remarkably engaging work is richly illustrated with angling anecdotes from California to Maine. Whether you've just bought your first rod or have been on the stream for years, The New American Trout Fishingis a necessary read and singular reference.
