This new book, released in 2009, provides a sound understanding of the relationship between naturals and their imitations, and between those imitations and the trout. You'll learn what nymphs you should spend your time tying, you'll learn how to tie them, and most important, you'll learn where and how to fish them in order to catch more trout.
Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters is broken logically into four parts.
- An introduction to the way nymphing shapes itself with notes on streamside and lakeside observation, nymph selection based on what you observe, and recommendations on tools and materials for both basic and advanced methods for tying nymphs that take trout.
- The selection and detailed tying of all sorts of effective searching nymph patterns for moving water.
- Imitative nymphs for moving waters, tightly relating naturals to their imitations.
- The fourth part covers stillwater nymphs. Trout are ore often selective in lakes and ponds, and the things they eat in stillwaters are often unlike trout foods in rivers and streams.
Nymph fishing has long been considered a complex and confusing subject, but this book makes it understandable, presenting the information that you really need to improve your tying and your fishing. Nymphs for Streams and Stillwaters will be your step-by-step reference to tying and fishing every nymph you'll ever need.
