In fly fishing, as in life, the very simplest things are the most important, and the easiest to overlook. Streit, in this important new book, reveals what he has learned in more than twenty years of guiding fly-fishing trips.

Streit has witnessed thousands of clients catch trout over the years, and their successes and failures often boiled down to a few elementary rules: keep the sun at your back, keep your silhouette off the water, keep your fly in productive water, think like a predator, and so on.

With an almost Zen-like scrutiny, Streit discusses his distilled techniques for fishing pressured trout. He looks into what separates the beginner from the expert caster, and dissects the mechanics of the perfect strike.

Other chapters include Streit’s thoughtful approaches to: drift ۰ nymphs ۰ dries ۰ drag-free swing ۰ bluegills and bobbers ۰ reading water ۰ riffles ۰ eddy fishing ۰ hiring a guide ۰ fighting fish ۰ wading ۰ catch and release ۰ reading maps.

The result is a refreshing take on how simple this complex sport really is.
