One for imitative fly fishers!,
This review is from: Matching the Hatch: Stillwater, River and Stream (Hardcover)
Matching the Hatch, in Pat O'Reilly's own words should be called Matching the Munch. As someone who is just starting along the road of imitative fly fishing and tying I have found this book an invaluable addition to my library. I is a superb guide to what trout may be feeding on throughout the year and most importantly it is written for the UK.
It is not what I originally expected in that it is not a fly-tying book. It is, however, superb! The book is made clear and is divided into the different seasons so you know what to look out for at different times of the year. For the fly-tiers among us, brief descriptions and photos are included of flies to use to imitate each beastie.
My own project over the next few weeks is to tie the Magnificent Seven and the Deadly Dozen from this book. Buy it, read it, and most importantly enjoy it!!
