The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations [NOOK Book]

Overview

Every fly fisher would agree that knowing your mayflies from your stoneflies is strongly correlated with a successful day on the water. This knowledge is vital because, as author Tom Rosenbauer notes, trout are shy and careful and can be fussy about what they eat. In addition, they won’t hesitate to swim away and leave a meal if they feel threatened.

Overview

Every fly fisher would agree that knowing your mayflies from your stoneflies is strongly correlated with a successful day on the water. This knowledge is vital because, as author Tom Rosenbauer notes, trout are shy and careful and can be fussy about what they eat. In addition, they won’t hesitate to swim away and leave a meal if they feel threatened.

In The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations, Rosenbauer explains how and when to use many types of trout foods, including aquatic insects, terrestrial insects, crustaceans, and more. Designed with both the novice and intermediate fly fisher in mind, Rosenbauer teaches readers how to:

Ambush trout
Identify types of insects
Present trout food properly
Observe what trout are eating
Use imitation trout foods
And more

With The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations at their sides, fly fishermen will be able to tell the difference between mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, midges, and a variety of other insects. In addition, they will also know when to use real foods and when to rely on the imitations in their tackle boxes.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although these four books are loaded with information, their size (61/2 inches high) will cause problems on library shelves, and the conventional paper and binding leaves them vulnerable to water damage (they are designed to fit into a pocket and be taken along on fishing trips). Despite the flaws, the entire series is worth purchasing for libraries that circulate flyfishing books. The best of the guides is The Orvis Streamside Guide to Approach and Presentation, which discusses where to find trout and how to catch them. As with all of the guides, the photos and drawings are well selected and produced, and the book is well written and easy to understand. The Orvis Streamside Guide to Leaders, Knots, and Tippets, which covers an underappreciated area of an overanalyzed sport, is also useful, but The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations is rather too general. However, it does contain some of the best insect photography available. Although it is probably easier to learn opera singing than fly casting from a book, The Orvis Streamside Guide to Fly Casting is no better or worse than the majority of other books on the topic. Overall, this set is a good value for fly fishers.--Jeff Grossman, Milwaukee Area Tech. Coll. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
