Book Description

23 Sep 2003
In this book Lou Stevens presents a new and radical approach to fishing the dry fly on a wide variety of small streams. He describes the techniques required and introduces the reader to the "Change of Pace Zones". The Small Stream Dry Fly has clear diagrams, informative text and colour photographs to help the reader develop new techniques and hopefully catch more fish. In this book Lou Stevens presents a new and radical approach to fishing the dry fly on a wide variety of small streams. Whether you are fishing the dry fly on chalk streams, hillstreams, brooks or moorland streams, the theory is the same. However, the tactics used vary enormously from one type of water to another. The dry fly is now widely accepted for use on almost all types of water, but the chalk stream technique has had to be extensively modified to achieve good results. Lou Stevens describes the techniques required and introduces the reader to the 'Change of Pace Zones'. He goes on to describe the variations of tactics that are necessary to exploit such zones. The book introduces the reader to a number of little known tactical flies. These are described in detail and include the flies needed to practise the radical 'damp fly' approach. For many fisherman there is something utterly delightful and intriguing in taking a trout on a dry fly, especially a fly that has been tied (and perhaps evolved) by the angler personally. The Small Stream Dry Fly with its clear diagrams, informative text and colour photographs will help the reader to develop new techniques and hopefully catch more fish.

For the experienced fly angler this book should make for some interesting light reading and for the novice it would make a useful study in the art of dry fly fishing.
