"I have gotten a number of helpful ideas from this book and personally from the author. I’m sure his book will be equally helpful to other anglers who wish to improve their fly fishing technique."
Jimmy Carter Former U.S. President
"It is said that, back in the 1940s and 50s, if an angler had one book on trout it would be Ray Bergman’s Trout. Fishing Dry Flies for Trout on Rivers and Streams is--shoot me if you want--a better, better written, more sophisticated book."
Gray’s Sporting Journal
"Art Lee's book should be a landmark, a touchstone, in every angler's education. Lee has thought through the art of fly-fishing with a clarity and an inelligence that is almost unrivaled. There isn't an angler alive who won't benefit from this book and some anglers may learn everything from it."
Verlyn Klinkenborg Sports Afield
"I wish I had Art Lee’s Fishing Dry Flies for Trout on Rivers and Streams when I began fishing. Lee takes us from the art of ‘reading’ a stream to the craft of netting a large trout."
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt New York TimesAbout the Author:
Over the past 40 years, Art Lee has earned the reputation as the consummate writer and angler and has emerged as the most instantly recognizable face in American fly fishing.
Lee takes pride in being a fishing writer who really fishes. The work from his pen flows from his line as he fishes at home and abroad, where he has caught ("and lost") about every species of sport fish from bluegill to blue marlin.
Currently the editor-at-large for Fly Fisherman, The Atlantic Salmon Journal, and Wild Steelhead & Salmon, Lee has been published in a wide range of the best publications in the country, including Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. The most recognizable face in American fly fishing, Art and his trademark long-billed cap have been featured on ESPN's Fly Fishing the World and ABC's The American Sportsman.
Lee and his wife Kris live and work where dry fly fishing in America really began, in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
