1973 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 222mm). Pp144. B/w photographs, illustrations by Sue Whitaker. Blue boards, spine titled in gilt.

"High quality fly-fishing for trout depends essentially on a regular supply of the nymphs, duns and spinners that constitute the type of food associated with 'rising fish'. The species involved spend the aquatic phases of their lives on certain water plants; if these are absent there will be little or no fly life and trout will then have to concentrate on forms of food which do not induce them to rise to anglers' imitations". Chapters include: The general picture; Chalk streams; Other streams; Still waters; The main plants; A background to nymphs; Plants and animals in detail; Plants dutiful and dubious; The periphyton; Weed cutting; Chemical control; Planting weeds - use of groins; Bankside herbage.
