Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a how-to book, this one is far more literate and interesting than most, enhanced by its focus on ways to interest trout when they're not interested. Rosenbauer's frequent use of illustrated angling anecdotes and the latest research findings also add dimension to the narrative."—Steve Raymond, Fly Fisherman magazine"Get this one. I guarantee it will teach you something."—Stephen J. Bodio, Fly Rod & Reel"…an invaluable guide to catching trout when they aren't rising."—Sports Afield"Rosenbauer enables the weekend warrior to fish more insightfully through reading this book."—Jon Kartman, Booklist"After I read this book, I realized it will not be one that will collect a lot of dust on the shelf. I know that I will pull it out time and again to read certain topics."—Paul Stackhouse, Decatur Daily

Tom is a great writer. He presents complex (you'll find this out the more you fish) concepts and techniques in a way that the beginner can easily absorb. I return to this book now and again (especially before fishing trips) to sharpen up. It's a worthwhile read and something to keep on your bookshelf always. Lots of material covered in here.
