Overview

No one knows more than Dave Whitlock about trout behavior, the great variety of foods trout eat, and how to imitate these foods effectively. His years of world-class experience-as fisherman, writer, artist, and instructor-have earned him the respect and affection of anglers everywhere. Yet until recently, only readers of Trout Magazine have been able to benefit from his most up-to-date work: clear, complete, and practical wisdom about the life cycles and behavior of mayflies, caddis, stoneflies, scuds, sowbugs, crayfish, grasshoppers, moths, aquatic worms, minnows, and dozens of other trout foods. With Dave's help, you'll learn how to make your fly flutter, wiggle, dart, crawl, or dead drift just like the real thing.

This book gathers the best of Dave's lively Trout columns and beautiful illustrations into a single, well-organized, indispensable volume. Beginners and seasoned fly anglers alike will find something useful here, from tips on reading the water to tying flies to recognizing rise forms. It's the next best thing to a one-on-one lesson with Dave himself, and the results are simple: you'll catch more fish.

In addition to his Trout column, Dave Whitlock regularly contributes writing and artwork to nearly every major outdoor and fly-fishing magazine, including Fly Fisherman, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, and Field & Stream. He also teaches fishing and fly-tying programs across the country. Dave lives in Oklahoma.

If you are a fly fisherman this book is a "MUST HAVE". I keep this book on my tying bench and refer to it often. Dave Whitlock has written many books, I have most of them in my library. I highly recommend this book.
