    Bob Wyatt writes, paints and fishes from his base in Middlemarch, New Zealand.

    Another excellent book from Bob Wyatt, following on from his 'Trout Hunting' a few years ago. Thought provoking and insightful based on years of experience. A man definitely in the 'presentation' camp. Rather than carrying myriad patterns, Wyatt relies on GISS and correct presentation of a fly and makes you wonder if all those patterns you carry are really necessary....probably not!

    A good bit of thought provoking,easy reading, well put together. May do fly tiers out of business? Probably not though.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 8 Mar 2014

    Dispels a lot of the myths that surround artificial flies. An invaluable read for any angler. Would have given it 5 stars but some of the points are a bit laboured. It is a must read though and some of the points are brilliant.
