From the Back Cover:

The Trout and the Fly has been acknowledged as one of the most important books on fly fishing to appear in this century. It takes further than any book before it our understanding of the world of the trout and the way that the angler, his fly, his tackle and his behavior appear to the fish under water.The book is the result of years of work by two of Britain's most respected and widely-read angling writers, supported by help from university scientists in several fields. The pictures contained in it have been selected from thousands of the authors' own photographs taken from above and below the surface. The test has been informed by high-speed film viewed frame by frame to reveal the detail of events that happen too quickly for the human eye to register.Within this remarkable book are clear understandings for both the river and stillwater angler of: the way a trout sees (and the implications for the flyfisher of its excellent color vision); the way natural and artificial flies appear to the trout (one result of which is a series of fly patterns designed to mimic the way natural flies look from below the surface); the way that lines and leaders of different colors look from underwater - and the implications for tackle choice; the clues which fish give to their feeding behavior and how the angler can interpret them. All this information, and much more, is available in this attractive volume, which includes a new introduction and a postscript added a year after first publication, reporting observations not available in the original text. (81/2 X 103/4, 196 pages, color photos, b&w photos, diagrams)
