What People are saying about this

John Randolph

Ernie Schwiebert, or simply Ernie, or "Ernesto" as he was known to the fly-fishing fraternity, was a larger-than-life character who set his stamp on fly fishing forever. (John Randolph, editor, F)

Howell Raines

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)

Paul Schullery

Few books in the entire history of fishing literature have constituted such a startling advance. Nymphs now seem to me to stand alone as the most accomplished solo writer-artist contribution to fly-fishing literature. With words and art, this book opened the eyes of the next two generations of fly fishers. (Paul Schullery, author, A )

Charles Gauvin

Just as nymphs and other aquatic macroinvertebrates are the ecological foundation of our trout streams, Schwiebert's classic book is the foundation of any well-educated angler's understanding of those waters. No other angling treatise provides as comprehensive a view of what occurs beneath the stream's surface as his. (Charles Gauvin, president and CEO, Trout Unlimited)
