  • A fly-fishing classic now in paperback

    Gary Borger's descriptions of the life histories of naturals have made this a classic among fly-fishing reference books. Learn to identify the species that are taken by trout-mayflies, terrestrials, caddis, stoneflies, midges, damselflies, and dragonflies, as well as forage fish, crustaceans, and mammals. Motion, silhouette, color, and size-features that trigger the trout's feeding instinct-are defined for each stage of the life cycle. Included are over 50 dressings with notes on presentation and fishing technique.
