About this title


Merwin, John. Stillwater Trout. New York, Nick Lyons Books, 1980. 28.5cm x 22cm. 223 pages. Original Hardcover with original price-clipped dustjacket. In protective Mylar. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Includes for example the following chapters: A Stillwater Sample: John Merwin/ The American Beginnings: Bob Elliot/ The British Explosion: Geoffrey Bucknall/ An Angler's Ecology/ A Basic Understanding: Jim Gilford/ High-Altitude Lakes: Fred Eiserman and Earl West/ Stillwaters West: Peter Moyle and Donald Baltz/ The Basic Necessities: Hal Janssen/ Getting Around: John Merwin/ The Nymph in Stillwater: Hal Janssen/ Fishing the Dry Fly: Dave Engerbretson/ Fishing the Streamer: Lefty Kreh/ The Midges/ A Miscellaneous Bestiary: Steve Raymond/ Fly-Fishing the Great Lakes: David Richey/ Flies for Stillwaters: John Merwin etc. Larger fish and an exacting new challenge are the lures to what may be one of the trout fisherman's last frontiers. This book explores this exciting new frontier which has been sadly neglected in previous fly-fishing literature. There are important chapters on the ecology and entomology of lakes- in the East, in alpine regions, and in the West, and thorough and practical information on the proper gear and techniques for this type of fishing, including the use of canoes, prams and the popular float tubes.

From the Back Cover:

Some of the largest trout are found in lakes, ponds, and other still waters, but catching them can be a difficult proposition since these hypersensitive creatures can detect an angler's presence at amazing distances.Stillwater Trout, a coordinated anthology by ore than a dozen experts, explores this rewarding arena of fly fishing. There are important chapters on entomology, gear, and techniques (including the use of float tubes), and separate sections on nymph fishing, dry-fly fishing, and fishing the streamer. The long final section on fly patterns - each with a full recipe and photograph - is extremely useful to the stillwater fly fisherman. Contributors include: Donald Baltz, Geoffrey Bucknall, Fred Eiserman, Bob Elliot, Dave Engerbretson, Jim Gilford, Hal Janssen, Lefty Kreh, John Merwin, Peter Moyle, Steve Raymond, David Richey, and Earl West. (81/4 X 103/4, 224 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)
