9780044400738: River Trout Fly Fishing

This book considers every aspect of flyfishing from the different characters of the fish, the insects that form each fish's diet, the tackle and tactics required to take trout, sea trout and grayling from streams and rivers of all types. It also looks at many of the inaccurate myths and much of the off-putting mystique that has been built up around fastwater flyfishing over the years. This book is designed to appeal equally to the beginner and to the more experienced river angler. For the newcomer to the sport, every aspect of tackle selection, casting, choice of fly and method of presentation is covered in detail. For those wishing to improve their performances or broaden their piscatorial horizons, there is advice and food for thought.

Book Description Unwin Hyman. London. 1988 1st edition. 8vo (159 x 241mm). Ppxiv,178. Colour and b/w photographs, b/w illustrations, bibliography. Black boards, spine titled in gilt. Slightly cocked and used but good-plus in like dust-wrapper. "Few flyfishers can resist the lure of running water. Whether it takes the stately form of one of the great chalk streams of southern England, the awesome power of an Usk or an Eden or the enchanting intimacy of a highland burn or a West Country moorland brook, its magic casts its spell and draws us back and back. River Trout Flyfishing considers every aspect of that magic - from the very waters we fish and the reasons for the differences in character between them, through the fish and the insects that form their diet, to the tackle and tactics required to take trout, sea trout and grayling from streams and rivers of all types. In the process, it sweeps away many of the inaccurate myths and much of the off-putting mystique that has been built up around fast-water flyfishing over the years." Chapters include:- The legacy of the past; The rivers and their fish; The trout's food; The tackle for the job; To cast a trout fly; A matter of timing; Dry-fly fishing; The upstream nymph; Wet-fly fishing; Sea-trout fishing; Grayling fishing; Lessons for the future.
