Customer Review

on 30 May 2010
There are at least two respects in which I regard this book as excellent: it is well-written, and it addresses the subject of the behaviour of nymphs. I mention the former because I have done a lot of editing and notice immediately when a writer makes a grammar or syntax error; I can also see whether he has thought about his sentences. The writer scores highly on both of these counts and adds an occasional touch of humour. Well-written books are becoming a rarity nowadays, though fly-fishing books seem better than most.
But enough of this - the main reason for recommending this book is the information on nymph behaviour. Most fly-fishing books give little or no space to this and yet it is one of the most important things that a fly fisherman learns. A trout feeds mainly below the surface and is often put off by a nymph behaving oddly. Thus it is vital that a fisherman knows whether his nymph is a darter, a crawler, or a burrower - and how it makes its way to the surface.
There is, of course, much more information than this. If I have a third reason for recommending this book it is that it is available for a very reasonable price.
