Most Trout Don't Read: Lessons from Time on the Water

By Scot Bealer, Lea Frye (Illustrator)

Contrary to popular belief, trout are not intellectuals! However, they are keen observers of their environment and well attuned to the elements important to their survival. If you plan on chasing them with a fly rod, you need to learn how to pay attention to those details. True mastery of the sport isn't about memorizing lots of facts, but rather having a sense of curiosity and spending time out on the water. Scot leads you on a journey of discovery, recalling occasions when he, or sometimes his clients, learned important lessons. His stories are warm, funny, and full of great advice to improve your skills and better enjoy your time on the water. His comments on gear, guides, and other aspects of the sport are based on decades of practical experience. The images from Lea's camera bring Scot's stories to life and will leave you yearning to get out there. If you enjoy fly fishing, being outdoors, or just want to learn more, you will love this book. 7x8 inches, 184 pgs.

About the author
background includes teaching, guiding and even a stint as the head instructor at the L.L. Bean Fly Fishing School. He has fished all over the country and introduced hundreds of people to the sport of fly fishing. He currently lives with his wife Lea Frye in Helena MT. When he is not out on the water fishing, he splits his time between helping Lea with her wildlife photography and working as an instructor in the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks “Hooked on Fishing” program.

Born in York, Pennsylvania, Lea Frye hails from a family of amateur photographers where her spark for photography began. However life took Lea on a long journey of discovery from graduating with a B.S. in Hotel and Restaurant Management at Indiana University of Pennsylvania to later acquiring a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Penn State University. Family and career took precedence for many years with photography becoming a fun outlet to document life and family adventures until 2018 when she dusted off her camera gear.

On the search for wide open spaces, Lea moved to her forever home in Helena, Montana in 2022 . Here she captures nature while exploring her backyard, which comprises lakes, valleys, prairies, and streams of the Rocky Mountains. Her philosophy on wildlife photography is to capture wild animals in their natural habitat - the landscapes where they roam, bringing to life the essence of the animal and its behaviors as seen in nature.
