Scotland is a country amply endowed with water. Most of this water takes the form of lochs and, until comparatively recently, almost every one of these lochs contained wild brown trout. Where the rich man had his salmon, the fishing of wild brown trout has been the heritage of the common man for generations. Out of this legacy has come the art form which we call traditional, or simply "loch style," fly fishing. Here, Stan Headley has succeeded in bringing this ancient and venerable practice up to date, and in doing so has debunked and demystified loch fishing in particular and fly fishing in general. He has replaced myth, fable, and fairy story with science, technology, and understanding. The author has always maintained that a thinking angler is a successful angler, and the purpose of these pages is not simply to inform but, more important, to encourage enlightened thought on a fascinating subject—wild trout and how to catch them. Now, armed with this unique book, both novice and experienced fly fisher alike will have a far greater understanding of fish behavior and successful fishing technique.
