This is an excellent book for those 'old-fashioned' anglers like myself who appreciate the subtleties of catching truly wild fish in flowing water.A personal view from the author which demonstartes his love for this type of fishing, which is mostly over-looked today in this era of catching over-fed, over-size carp using bivvies and bite alrams, from man made holes in the ground. This book describes 'real' fishing , catching wild fish in natural surroundings which goes back to the real reason why many of us started fishing in the first place. It captures the magic of stalking, casting to and hopefully hooking a wild creature in it's natural habitat. This book shows that size isn't everything when it comes to fishing.

Very descriptive passages which make one dream of solitude and the beauty of nature. Something that is rare in this modern world we live in.
I chose to give it a four out of five stars due to the authors distaste to still water fisheries. I feel that in realty most fly fishers begin on still waters and then advance to rivers, so therefore still waters have actually helped the sport. Update, I went fishing and put to the test the methods I have read about in this book. My catch rate more than doubled, need I say any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely stunning detail encompassed with a passion for the sport. Pat Regans Book is a fantastic read for the novice and experienced fly fisher.
I personally felt the child like excitement grow with each new chapter as each tale from river and beck unfolded into a descriptive adventure.
If you love fly fishing and being at one in nature this book will engross you....... quite simply you will not want to put it down once you have started reading it.

Pat tells the magic of fishing the Lancashire rivers in such a way that it has your rod hand twitching. You can almost touch the river and the trout. Definitely a book to wet ones apatite.

Pat Regans passion and enthusiasm for fly fishing on north country rivers and Becks are second to none. It comes across superbly in this book.
When you can't get to the river, this book takes you there.
