Readily accessible to most fly anglers and often producing fish of trophy proportions, stillwaters are among the most productive, but also the most challenging, trout waters in which to wet a line. Ponds and lakes undergo many moods and changes throughout the year.

In a concise and down-to-earth style, Lepage covers fly rods suitable for stillwaters; sinking, floating, and specialty fly lines and when to use each; how to choose leaders and tippet materials wisely; and explains why sunglasses may be one of your most important pieces of equipment.
