In this comprehensive and readable guide, Tom Rosenbauer shares his vast knowledge of fly fishing when there is no hatch. Written for both the novice and the seasoned angler, The Orvis Guide to Prospecting for Trout, New and Revised explores how trout live and feed, and how to make them strike, with a thoroughly updated text that addresses state-of-the-art approaches, and all new color photography. There is expert advice on how to fish with dry flies, wet flies, nymphs, and streamers-supported by many detailed illustrations and photos. This is the guide no trout fisherman should be without.
As a how-to book, this one is far more literate and interesting than most, enhanced by its focus on ways to interest trout when they're not interested. Rosenbauer's frequent use of illustrated angling anecdotes and the latest research findings also add dimension to the narrative. -Steve Raymond, Fly Fisherman magazine Get this one.
