Now in an updated edition with important new advice including the latest nymph patterns, commentary on the nymph revolution at Taupo, and many other practical hints on how to trick the wily trout, [this book] will be welcomed by a whole new generation of anglers". "A close study of the life of streams and lakes convinced Tony Orman that nymphs are a trout's staple diet. 'Present the trout with what it feeds on,' he says, 'and you are half way to success.' With many delightful instances drawn from his own observation, with instruction on the tying of nymph patterns, Tony Orman shows how this success may be achieved. His book is valuable for its practical advice. In addition, the author takes us on a fascinating journey to mountain streams and remote lakes in both the North and South Islands of New Zealand, a journey that captures the rewards and joyful uncertainties of trout-fishing at its best".
