Selective Trout was hailed as the most revolutionary approach to trout-fly imitation in the twentieth century. Now this fly-fishing best-seller - with more than 150,000 copies sold - is back in a new, thoroughly updated edition, with hundreds of color photographs and scores of color illustrations by Dave Whitlock.The new Selective Trout is completely revised and expanded to include hatch charts for caddisflies and stoneflies as well as mayflies throughout the entire country, the latest entomological information, and a new chapter on terrestrials. In this new edition, the authors have refined their fly patterns and techniques with over half a century of combined experience to arrive at a down-to-earth guide that will help anglers catch more fish. Readers will learn how to tie a small arsenal of the most useful flies that will match the hatch and work virtually anywhere.Swisher and Richards have added new observations about trout behavior and information about how anglers can be more successful by recording data in a streamside log. Along with its hundreds of new color photographs, there are also three new detailed appendices that show everything an angler needs to know about mayflies, caddisflies, stoneflies, and terrestrials.The new Selective Trout is the definitive reference on imitation for anglers everywhere. No angler can afford to fly fish without having read this book. (83/4 X 11, 276 pages, color photos, illustrations, charts
