Synopsis: This provocative book thrusts the reader into the world of the trout. Its premise is that the fisherman is a hunter, and that to be skillful and successful in his pursuit he must understand his quarry intimately.

Lee Wulff draws on nearly three quarters of a century of serious angling to explain what a trout will do under various circumstances, why it takes up a particular position in a river, why and when it feeds as it does, what we must know to bring it to our fly. His perceptions appear deceptively simple, as only a master's analyses can seem. Through Wulff's eyes, we understand the many factors that affect the tout and our pursuit - temperature, stream flow, the different types of water in a river, approach and presentation, tactics, and flies and their structures. Throughout, there is the innovative mind of a great fisherman not solving a trout fisherman's problems for him but requiring that a fisherman learn to solve them for himself.

Trout on a Fly is for all serious trout fishermen; it is the kind of book that can change the way a fisherman sees and approaches the trout and its world. (51/4 X 81/4, 192 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, diagrams)

From Library Journal: Another entry in the crowded field of fly fishing primers, loosely defined, seems hardly cause for jubilation. But Wulff, a highly respected veteran fisher and author, has put together a superb and understated little volume that may well be the best book of angling advice in the last 20 years. Although chapter headings promise the standard range of subjects (e.g., "Trout Vision," "Casting"), Wulff delivers more experience and insight and wastes less time elucidating the obvious than the majority of his fellow authors. His book can be read with profit by an intelligent beginner, but it will be even better appreciated by the experienced. Wulff presents his topic with the sure touch of a master teacher, who after 75 years can readily penetrate to the heart of his subjects. David J. Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
