New Zealand has a myriad of lakes, tarns, ponds and other stillwaters most of which contain trout. To consistently catch the trout they contain requires a different approach. Les Hill co-author of the phenomenally successful books 'Stalking Trout', 'Catching Trout' and 'Images of Silver' sets out with some help from his friends to de-mystify the secrets of catching trout in stillwaters. The secrets emerge from simple things like identifying the places to find trout, how to spot and stalk. The food stillwater trout eat, how to identify and use the currents and layers in large bodies of water. The importance of changing tactics to fish the different seasons. All play a part in this lavishly illustrated book, the colour photography, diagrams and black and white photographs clearly illustrate everything needed to be successful stalking stillwaters. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: LES HILL has been a keen angler for more than 40 years. He is a teacher by profession. In 1970 Les graduated from Otago University having completed a science degree in zoology and earth science and a post graduate year studying earth science. Prior to entering Teachers' College he worked as a research scientist in hydrology. This experience in zoology and hydrology has given a sound background for his writing. Les Hill's photographs and articles have appeared in many magazines and books in New Zealand and Australia for more than a decade. GRANT WINTER is both a teacher and an artist. After attending the Canterbury School of Fine Arts he pursued both careers. He has worked as an illustrator for magazines and has done freelance graphic work. He has exhibited his art in Wellington, Nelson and Akaroa. Grant has illustrated five previous books - 'The Young Hunter', 'Stalking Trout', 'Catching Trout', 'Assailed' and 'Men in Pink'. Grant has taught at primary, secondary and tertiary levels - being employed for much of his working life as a specialist art teacher.
