Any fly-fisher worth his or her waders knows that, like most things in life, successful angling often stems from simple observation; if you pay attention to what's around you--plants, animals, weather, and especially insects--you'll catch more fish and have a better time doing it. This big book on such a very narrowly defined subject is all about providing the angler with a vast amount of information on a single order of insect: Ephemeroptera, the mayflies. Who will benefit from Mayflies? In the authors' own words, it is "written for the novice and expert fly fishers who wish to understand the fundamentals of mayfly entomology and how to effectively fish mayfly species inhabiting the trout waters of North America." To this end, there are chapters on the mayfly's life cycle (with in-depth discussions of each phase, from nymph to emerger to dun to spinner), detailed sections on many common species, and instructions for the fly tier. Drawings, photos, charts, graphs, and an attractive layout enhance the considerable descriptive and scientific text. In all, this is an exhaustive study that should provide serious anglers with useful and fascinating information for those difficult hours spent off the water.From the Back Cover:
This really is the new Bible on mayflies. It's more than a step forward in fly-fishing knowledge. It leaps over the old reliable compendia on mayflies to include all the latest information from anglers and professional entomologists alike. This book will be the fly fisher's key to success with all the great mayfly hatches on North American trout waters. Backed by an amazing body of scientific research, the authors explain everything about the major mayfly species - where, when, and how they emerge and lay eggs - and then describe the best angling tactics and prescribe the best imitations for fishing all the life stages of these important insects.
