"In my opinion, [Ernest Schwiebert] was the most important figure of the 20th century in the fly-fishing world." —Howell Raines, Pulitzer Prize–winner and former executive editor, New York Times
"Ernie Schwiebert, or simply Ernie, or 'Ernesto' as he was known to the fly-fishing fraternity, was a larger-than-life character who set his stamp on fly fishing forever." — John Randolph, editor, Fly Fisherman
"Few books in the entire history of fishing literature have constituted such a startling advance. Nymphs now seems to me to stand alone as the most accomplished solo writer-artist contribution to fly-fishing literature. With words and art, this book opened the eyes of the next two generations of fly fishers"—Paul Schullery, author, American Fly Fishing: A History
"Just as nymphs and other aquatic macroinvertebrates are the ecological foundation of our trout streams, Schwiebert's classic book is the foundation of any well-educated angler's understanding of those waters. No other angling treatise provides as comprehensive a view of what occurs beneath the stream's surface as his." —Charles Gauvin, President and CEO, Trout Unlimited
