The best fishing in any given location is seldom a secret, and as more and more anglers fish in such areas, the trout often become fussy eaters. "Educated" trout often focus solely on the small but plentiful aquatic insects that are frequently overlooked by the average fly fisher. Although some anglers are under the impression that small flies are difficult to fish, or that big fish won't take small flies, nothing could be further from the truth. In this guide to catching picky trout with small flies, Larry Tullis covers: trout feeding behaviour and its relationship to small-fly fishing; distinguishing between "educated" and "uneducated" trout; where to find strike and drift zones; understanding trout foods; how to select the best small-fly patterns; how to best utilize your tackle; and more. There are accompanying illustrations by angling illustrator Rod Walinchus.
