1974 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 222mm). Ppxii,157. B/w photographs, illustrations, bibliography. Brown cloth, spine titled in gilt.

"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." Chapters include: Why fish nymph; Tackle requirements; Basic entomology; Match the hatch; In the evening; Nymphs in the surface film; Tying artificials; Supernormal releasers; The horn nymph; Nymph patterns; Life in the nymph?; When and where; Stalking and spotting; Summer days with the nymph; Nymphs in lakes; Fishing backwaters; Water hydraulics; Fishing the fast water; The threadline and nymph; By other means; The mental approach; A lesson for the day; Summer browns; Back country trout; New Zealand has the lot. Appendices on basic fly tying by the author and matching the natural by Charles R.H. Nott.
