"To the newcomer, the whole position of lake trouting is a confusion of intermingled fly systems, mostly unrelated to tactics. (Geoffrey Bucknall) has reduced this muddle to an inteligible system of fly-selection and related it directly to the tactics he has outlined and proved by personal experience. Choice of tackle, casting techniques and fishing practices are all tied to these tactics, and, in turn, tactics are tied to the behaviour of the trout in his native element. Here, Geoffrey Bucknall applies his knowledge of trout include: General considerations - tackle and casting; Fly dressing still water; Boat fishing; Approach to bank fishing; Catching the 'sticklebacker'; The mysterous buzzers; The importance of sedge-flies; Olives and the other dayflies; Insects from the land; The sunk line; Dwarfs and giants; Blagdon and Weirwood Lakes; A fly-fisherman's philosophy. Appendices: Casting sequel; Dressings of artificial flies used by the author; Suggestions for further reading.
