TROUT ON A NYMPH. By John Roberts.

1991 1st edition. 4to (192 x 253mm). Pp192. Colour plates of flies, colour and b/w photographs, illustrations by Anthony Richards, bibliography. Blue boards, spine titled in gilt.

This is John Roberts' sequel to his much acclaimed To Rise a Trout. A detailed analysis of how trout feed below the surface begins the book and underpins the subsequent discussion of how to catch them. "Emphasis is given to the characteristics, behaviour and differences between groups of the natural nymphs of the upwinged species, stoneflies and caddis. There is also a section on the non-fly fauna which are fished in nymph style, such as shrimps". The author also emphasises how much of European experience and methods can be applied to nymph fishing in North America and vice versa. Chapters include: Nymph fishing - a personal philosophy; The natural nymph; Trout and the caddis; The trout and its world; The trout and the nymph; Streamside strategy; Presentation techniques for the deep nymph; Midwater nymphing; Nymphing below the film; Lines and leaders; Considerations in nymph design; A selection of nymphs and sub-surface flies.
