Scotland is a country amply endowed with water. Most of this water takes the form of lochs and, until comparatively recently, almost every one of these lochs contained wild brown trout. Where the 'toff' had his salmon, the fishing of wild brown trout has been the heritage of the common man for generations. Out of this legacy has come the art form which we call traditional, or simply 'loch style', fly fishing. In "The Loch Fisher's Bible", Stan Headley has succeeded in bringing this ancient and venerable practice up to date, and in doing so has debunked and demystified loch fishing in particular and fly fishing in general. He has replaced myth, fable and fairy story with science, technology and understanding. The author has always maintained that a thinking angler is a successful angler, and the purpose of these pages is not simply to inform but, more important, to encourage enlightened thought on a fascinating subject - wild trout and how to catch them. Now, armed with this unique book, both novice and experienced fly fisher alike will have a far greater understanding of fish behaviour and successful fishing technique.

Review:

'The weight of the book in my hand and its general quality were enough to tell me I was about to read something different, even had the author's name not been enough. Few are as well qualified as he to write the authoritative work on the subject. I can't think of a better [book] for ...loch fishers to read.' -- Andrew Herd Waterlog Magazine
