Until recently, only readers of Trout Magazine have been able to benefit from Dave Whitlock's most up-to-date work: clear, complete, and practical wisdom about the life cycles and behavior of mayflies, caddis, stoneflies, scuds, sowbugs, crayfish, grasshoppers, moths, aquatic worms, minnows, and dozens of other trout foods. With Dave’s help, you’ll learn how to make your fly flutter, wiggle, dart, crawl, or dead drift just like the real thing.

This book gathers the best of Dave’s lively Trout columns and beautiful illustrations into a single, well-organized, indispensable volume. Beginners and seasoned fly anglers alike will find something useful here, from tips on reading the water to tying flies to recognizing rise forms. It’s the next best thing to a one-on-one lesson with Dave himself, and the results are simple: you’ll catch more fish.
