This fully updated guide to freshwater insects of Britain and Ireland is compiled by Britain's foremost angler-entomologist, John Goddard. With superb colour photographs of both common and rare species, it is an invaluable reference book, offering clear guidance to the angler in his choice of artificial fly.
Every angler knows the thrill that comes from watching a fish rising persistently to take flies floating on the surface of the water. It is with a matching sense of frustration that you see your own imitations studiously ignored by the fish – no matter how perfectly the line is cast. At times like this you long for the kind of expert entomological assistance that John Goddard can provide.
This new edition of the 'Waterside Guide' features the terrestrial and aquatic insects that form the diet of trout, grayling and other freshwater species. It tells you exactly what to look for in making a correct identification, plus fascinating life-cycle, habitat, distribution and emergence details.
What has already become a classic title has now been reissued with updated text and photographs. The majority of the colour photographs that appear in this volume have been taken by the author over many years. They form a unique collection, some showing insects which can only be seen on the wing for brief hours in the season.
For anglers – especially flyfishers – who have wanted to know more about the insects of the waterside, this essential pocket book will add a whole new dimension to the fishing experience.
"Indispensable to the serious fly-fisher."
PETER LAPSLEY, 'Shooting Times' and 'Country Magazine'
"What a goldmine of information!"
