First published in 1973, "Nymphs" details the immature stages of the aquatic insect-hatches that account for as much as 90 percent of a trout's normal diet. Describing more than 300 nymphs and their imitations, while illustrating over 200 varieties -- from the Giant Stonefly Nymphs to the Microcaddis -- this updated and revised classic is rich in angling lore and evocative descriptions of trout country in both Europe and the United States.A lucid exposition combining entomology, fly-fishing techniques, tackle selection, and fly-presentation tactics in the field, "Nymphs" helps the angler equip himself with imitations that match the color, configuration, and size of a wide variety of naturals. It's an invaluable resource for the modern American fly fisherman.show more
