1987 1st edition. 8vo (158 x 242mm). Pp176. Colour and b/w photographs, illustrations. Blue boards, spine titled in gilt.

"Mastery of the nymph is not just selecting a fly that looks a little like the trout's food, it's also adopting the correct depth and retrieve. To deceive a stillwater trout which has settled into a natural feeding pattern, presentation of the nymph must be perfect. We can slightly exaggerate some factors, like the size of fly or speed of retrieve but, overall, to deceive a trout successfully, we have to give a good impression of nature". Chapters include; Why master the nymph; Tackle; Tactics - it's not what you fish, it's the way you fish it; The buzzer - the stillwater nymph angler's standby; The sedge - not just a fly for summer; The olive - a spring and autumn favourite; The corixia - the bank angler's best friend; Large nymphs; Shrimps and snails; The caenis; non-specific imitators; The booby series - fast-sink line nymphing; The drifting boat - a new are for the nymph angler; A calendar for the nymph angler; Where next - some thoughts on the future of nymphing; The birth of the Fraser Nymph and other stories; Dressings.
