"While this new publication is another book primarily for the novice fly fisher, it has excellent information on the different insect orders available to trout in our local lakes. The superb photographs of both the natural and the imitating fly, complete with materials used, will benefit even the most experienced fly fisher. The instruction on 'How to', 'When to' and 'Where to' regarding fishing lakes leaves little to be desired." --Gary Cutler, The Kamloops Flyfisher
"Two of the Northwest's best-known and respected fly fishers collaborated on this book that is illustrated with numerous color pictures and black and white drawings. This book is a helpful condensation of knowledge about Northwest lakes, insects, trout feeding habits, techniques for catching trout, fly fishing equipment, flotation devices and fly patterns." --Fenton Roskelly, The Spokesman-Review
