About the Author: Peter Lapsley has fished for trout, sea trout and grayling in the UK and overseas for over forty-five years. He is a nationally qualified game angling instructor - STANIC and APGAI ('Trout & Sea Trout' and 'Fly Tying'), has written, co-written or edited eight previous angling books, including the bestseller, Fly Fishing by J.R. Hartley, to which he was fly-fishing adviser, and has contributed countless articles to a wide range of British and overseas game angling and field sports magazines. He owned and ran a successful trout fishery in Hampshire for several years in the 1980s. Although he now lives and works in London, fishing chiefly on the chalk streams of southern England, Peter retains a passion for the lovely wild-trout waters of Scotland, Wales and Ireland, of the North of England and of the West Country. He is married with two grown-up children.
