What Trout Want: The Educated Trout and Other Myths
What Trout Want: The Educated Trout and Other Myths
by Bob Wyatt
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent rehash, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a big fan of Wyatt, however this is very much a rehash of his previous book and rather repetitive of his basic premise. Well worth the money if you haven't read Trout Hunting and can't get hold of it.

Bought these for unhooking fish. A lot cheaper than buying a set in a fishing tackle shop and they do the job just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent addition to any fly fishers library., 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book on fly fishing the dry fly on North Country becks. I know many of the waters that he talks about and fished them in my youth. When he writes about fishing his touch is sure, his knowledge extensive and his views well worth listening to.
I found some of his bucolic anecdotes heavy handed and uninteresting and in my view, by leaving them out he would have produced a slimmer but better book. Hence only four stars.

However, the fishing stuff is excellent and I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to any fly fisher whether they fish rivers or not.

Matching the Hatch: Stillwater, River and Stream
by Pat O'Reilly
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal basic entomology for the fisherman, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good basic stuff with good clear photos. Ideal for basic fly recognition - it goes into more detail but you can take out what you want without getting too bogged down.
