Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
It remains thoroughly sound and enchanting.

Pennsylvania Outdoor Times
Derrydale Press has recently reissued a beautiful reprint of the second edition of Trout from 1952 in a softcover format with elegant French folds. I am especially fond of the second edition because in it, I first enjoyed the lessons that Bergman had to offer me as a budding fly-fisherman and fly tier. Young, Walt
Field and Stream
Bergman had the easy going style of a favorite uncle coupled with a sharply analytical mind that made the subtle sides of trout fishing easy to understand and fun to read....If you haven't yet met Bergman in print, I envy the joy of your discovery

The New York Times - Nelson Bryant
It remains thoroughly sound and enchanting.
The New York Times - Harmon Henkin
The only true American angling classic still read widely is Ray Bergman's Trout...It remains the best all-around basic text, managing to cover fundamentals of theory and practice in a smooth and relaxed way...Trout remains our Old Testament, the first and only book many anglers look to for guidance.
The Dallas Morning News - Randy Bishop
Trout is one of the classics of fishing, and like all classics, seems timeless. Despite innovations in rods, reels, and waders, fly fishing for trout has an enduring quality that partly explains many of its devotees' passion.
Outdoor Life - Scott Bowen
Trout became the standard text for spin-fisherman and flyfishermen of several generations.

Fish and Fly, (Uk) - Terry Lawton
This edition of the book...has very attractive and charming plates taken from period water colours of fish, flies, streamers, and spinners painted by William J. Schaldach.

Bergman's Trout has long been revered for it's practical information that still holds water. Reading it is experiencing trout angling in the early part of the last century. This is the reference of choice for those tying classic wet flies.
