9780811710916: The Trout Diaries: A Year of Fly-Fishing in New Zealand

With disarming honesty and freshness, Derek Grzelewski has written a highly readable account of his year dedicated to fly-fishing in New Zealand, relating the highs and lows, and the intricacies and finesse, of pursuing trout in the wild places and pristine waters he loves so much. Each month, illustrated with fly sketches by passionate fellow-angler Johnny Groome, covers aspects of fly-fishing relevant to that time of year. Along the way we meet many of the author s friends and clients, including top professional guides and a couple of trout scientists, and share his insights into the art of fly-fishing. He also considers innovative techniques and equipment, the pros and cons of catch-and-release, and ponders on our relationship with the natural world and environmental factors affecting our waterways. The Trout Diaries contains a wealth of captivating and often amusing anecdotes as well as useful technical information making it a true angler s companion, both literary and practical. "I can t remember reading a better fishing book... The Trout Diaries will surely become a classic." Rod Sloane, editor Fly Life

'No matter where in the world he might reside or how slim his chances of visiting New Zealand might be, I defy any angler not to take some form of inspiration from The Trout Diaries. Endlessly thought provoking, never dull, it has more than lived up to the publisher's advance billing as 'quite a special read'. It is the best flyfishing book I have read this year.' Jeffrey Prest, Trout Fisherman

'The Trout Diaries is a trophy catch that will satisfy angler, adventurer and philosopher alike.' Kennedy Warne, founding editor of New Zealand Geographic

'I can't remember reading a better fishing book... The Trout Diaries will surely become a classic.' Rod Sloane, Editor Fly Life

Review:

I can't remember reading a better fishing book... The Trout Diaries will surely become a classic. --Rod Sloane, Editor Fly Life

Former professional fly-fishing guide Derek Grzelewski has written this account of his year dedicated to fly-fishing in New Zealand. It s a combination of diary, technical information, reflections on fish and fishing and insights into fly-fishing. Beautifully illustrated by Johnny Groome, this is definitely one for the keen angling bibliophile s bookshelf. --Irish Angler

The book could have got by on anecdote and wry perception alone but it is also a treasury of angling tips, all woven into the story of each month by the water, that extends the 'Diaries' appeal far beyond Kiwi shores... No matter where in the world he might reside or how slim his chances of visiting New Zealand might be, I defy any angler not to take some form of inspiration from The Trout Diaries. Endlessly thought provoking, never dull, it has more than lived up to the publisher's advance billing as 'quite a special read'. It is the best flyfishing book I have read this year. --Jeffrey Prest, Trout Fisherman

About the Author:
