"An irreverent little gem; it's a fast read that's chock full of ...little nuggets that will improve your trout tactics and techniques". (Dick Brown). "Trout Maverick is a full collection of the finest lore and theory taken from sixty years of fly fishing by one of America's most independent, challenging, and original angling writers. Len Wright's 'heresies' are becoming well accepted, as they are brilliant fish-taking techniques. Some of these are: fishing a dry fly with a slight, upstream twitch; tying floating caddis imitations with hackle-fiber wings; dancing a dropper down-current; using extra-long fly rods; demonstrating that wet flies are superior to nymphs; and dozens of others. Everyone can learn from Len Wright's years of study and commitment - always to what works in fly fishing, not merely what is habit of even tradition". Chapters include:- The perfect fish; When trout feed and why; Trout-taking places; Brookies in the briny; A dirge for opening day; Great-Grandfather's trout; More trout per mile; The deadliest lure; Angling's forgotten fly; A dry-fly philosophy; The all-American fly; The unsinkable wet fly; A midsummer night's dream fly; How to buy superior trout flies; A gut reaction; The ultimate fly rod; Long live the long rod; Cashing in on caddis; The world's greatest trout fisherman; What to do when there's no hatch to match; Little tricks that take summer trout; The alive-and-kicking dry fly; Special deliveries; Picking pockets; The trout fishing to come; Far from the maddening crowd - but not very.
