"A milestone in angling literature". Tom Ivens' "Stillwater fly-fishing" and Clarke's "The pursuit of stillwater trout" marked the transition of stillwater trout fishing in Britain from traditional loch-style to modern imitative methods. This was really the first book to set out in a logical way the thought processes which led the author to be able to choose one fly in preference to another, knowing that he had made a reasoned and sensible choice. The novice, faced with a huge expanse of water, and without the experience of previous successes, lacks the confidence that a trout would want to eat his patently artificial lure. This book provides the reasoning for him to decide on fly pattern and method.
