Synopsis: Some of the largest trout are found in lakes, ponds, and other still waters, but catching them can be a difficult proposition since these hypersensitive creatures can detect an angler's presence at amazing distances.

Stillwater Trout, a coordinated anthology by ore than a dozen experts, explores this rewarding arena of fly fishing. There are important chapters on entomology, gear, and techniques (including the use of float tubes), and separate sections on nymph fishing, dry-fly fishing, and fishing the streamer. The long final section on fly patterns - each with a full recipe and photograph - is extremely useful to the stillwater fly fisherman. Contributors include: Donald Baltz, Geoffrey Bucknall, Fred Eiserman, Bob Elliot, Dave Engerbretson, Jim Gilford, Hal Janssen, Lefty Kreh, John Merwin, Peter Moyle, Steve Raymond, David Richey, and Earl West. (81/4 X 103/4, 224 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)
