Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In my opinion, [Ernest Schwiebert] was the most important figure of the 20th century in the fly-fishing world.”  —Howell Raines, Pulitzer Prize–winner and former executive editor, New York Times

“Schwiebert’s elegant prose and fascinating storytelling make for enjoyable, engaging reading [that] is so detailed and comprehensive that the rest of us will be depending on Schwiebert’s work for decades to come.”  —Philip Monahan, editor, American Angler, on Nymphs

"Ernest Schwiebert was one of the most influential anglers of his time, bringing fluid prose and scientific precision to the knotty problems of enticing trout with artificial flies. Now a new generation can experience the Schwiebert touch as he adds still greater dimension to the art of nymph fishing.”  —John Merwin, fishing editor, Field & Stream, on Nymphs
