Fish Food: A Fly Fisher's Guide to Bugs and Baitby Ralph Cutter
A thorough examination of the foods trout eat, by a master of observation and adaptation whose curiosity has led to innovations in fly design and angling techniques. Covers specific trout foods such as blue-winged olives, caddis, damselfies, scuds, and ants, and general information, including insect life cycles and taxonomy. Rather than accepting point-blank the traditional views of insect hatches, the author has donned his snorkeling gear and studied species underwater, adapting his fishing to reflect his findings.
