Overview

The Orvis Streamside Guide to Trout Foods and Their Imitations by Tom Rosenbauer

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.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
