Practical fly-fishing solutions from an international master.
John Goddard’s Trout-Fishing Techniques is the distillation of more than a half century of fly-fishing wisdom by a master. Goddard focuses on fly fishing for trout, and includes chapters on tackle; the trout’s senses; casting to, hooking, and playing trout; where to find trout in both rivers and lakes; trout foods; and fishing with wet flies, dry flies, and nymphs.
A special section thoroughly covers the methods necessary for catching trout in stillwaters. In addition, Goddard offers full tying recipes for many of his original patterns, including the world-famous Goddard Caddis.
“Drawing upon fifty years of trout-fishing experience, Goddard produces a solid, well-written example of the type. So weed out a couple of other trout books, add this one, and steer anyone who asks how to start fly fishing for trout to it.”
“Better take a close look at this one! John Goddard is a consummate fly angler and he knows his business in depth. There’s plenty of solid meat in this book. Meat that will make you a better fly fisher. I promise.”
“While this book is a must for beginning and intermediate trout fishers, even the expert stands to learn much from its pages.”
—Leonard M. Wright Jr., author of Trout Maverick
