About this title


"Trout Flies" presents the most carefully tested and proven series of fish-takers now available to the fly fisherman. There are the flies of legend -- sixty-two of them: nationally acclaimed patterns such as the Emergent Sparkle Pupa, along with effective innovations such as the Twist Nymph. But this is not just another recipe book. It is crammed with fine and important observations on the habitat, the fish, and the techniques of fishing all of the flies; for without such knowledge, even the best flies are doomed to produce limited results."Trout Flies" is a top-to-bottom analysis of day-to-day situations in all types of trout water. It gives anglers the best of modern flies -- all proven patterns -- and all the expert information fly fishers need to fool fish consistently with these exciting patterns.


LaFontaine's landmark book Caddisflies set the standard for taking a scientific approach to the sport of catching trout on a fly. In Trout Flies: Proven Patterns, he combines observation with a deep understanding of entomology to examine the art of fly tying. This large, attractive volume boasts color plates, step-by-step diagrams, and the author's lively discussion of patterns that work--and why they succeed. Twenty years of research and development are reflected in these pages, with many proven variations on dries, emergers, nymphs, wets, and streamers. Excerpts from the author's own fishing logs, describing experiments with his patterns, lend a personal touch to his fine instruction.
