Quite simply this is the best book I have read on fly-fishing, and I have well over 100 books on fly-fishing in my bookcases. This simplified approach to catching trout, without the baggage of myth, pseudo-science, and self-serving BS is something I have tried to preach in my own books and articles – just wish I could write it half as well.
I don’t care where in the world you fly-fish for trout, read it and become a better fly-fisher.
“In What Trout Want, Bob Wyatt busts one of fly-fishing’s biggest myths -selectivity- and teaches readers how to:
- Simplify fly pattern design
- Reduce the number of patterns needed
- Improve presentation and stealth
- Catch pressured trout
Catching trout simplified
- A brilliantly written and well-crafted exposé fly fishing’s greatest myths–selectivity, matching the hatch, pressured fish, fish feeling pain, precise imitations, drag-free drifts
- Recipes for the author’s tried-and-true patterns
- Practical, down-to-earth suggestions for catching fish”
