More About the Author

Adrian Freer was born, and still lives in, Leicestershire and was educated at Loughborough Grammar School and Leicester College of Art & Technology (now De Montfort University).
He started fishing as a boy in the 1950s, in the days when the Leicester Canal was producing its memorable catches, and caught his first trout on an artificial fly from Eyebrook Reservoir in the early 1960s.
Initially, Adrian was principally a coarse fish angler and he participated in numerous matches and also co-managed two private fishing clubs. Subsequently, however, he started to concentrate on fly fishing and for the last twenty years he has fished almost exclusively for trout.
Adrian has been a long-standing member of both the Leicestershire Fly Fishing Association and the Anglers' Conservation Association (now merged into The Angling Trust) and, as well as being a dedicated fly fisherman and fly tyer, he also has a keen interest in entomology.
Adrian Freer is author of the highly acclaimed Successful Reservoir Fly Fishing Techniques: A Trout Angler's Guide to Improved Catches (Crowood Press, 2007) and Reservoir Trout Flies: An Angler's Guide to Successful Fly Patterns (Crowood Press, 2010).
He contributes articles for FlyFishing & FlyTying, Total FlyFisher and other magazines and also gives illustrated slideshows to fly fishing clubs in the Midlands area.
As well as writing on angling subjects, Adrian also writes books on religious topics, children's stories and also contemporary poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 22 Sep 2011
By Andy
Format:Hardcover
Reservoir fly anglers who want above average catches probably cannot do better than read this.
It goes through through the choice of suitable tackle and casting, discusses the nature of lakes, water conditions, weather and the behaviour of the trout.
I found the chapters on leader choice and design helpful and this subject doubtless deserves more thought than at present I give it.
The chapter on spooning the fish is as comprehensive as I have seen and there are many photographs of the results. Following on from this is information about the diet of trout.
Techniques for the various conditions are described together with recommended flies and dressings.
The author affirms that being serious about fly fishing results in better bags and it makes it much more pleasurable. He obviously enjoys his fishing and wants the reader to enjoy his as well.
There is probably something to be learnt, or reminded of, for most trout anglers here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Returning to fly fishing. 28 Feb 2013
By mark
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have spent many hours reading and studying this book. I have loved every minute of it and would recommend this to anyone thinking of taking up fly fishing. I had some prior knowledge of fly fishing which did help in understanding various techniques but I feel this book can help anyone who desires to know more about this sport. Have purchased my rod and tackle and about to enjoy my retirement, chasing the trout...

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive read 14 April 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is the best book on trout fishing that I have read. The title is a bit off putting, and the author tends to come across as a bit like a primary school headmaster at times but nonetheless this is a really enjoyable book packed with very useful information and lots of good photos. Highly recommended. Has improved my fishing immeasurably.
