Remarkable macro-photography of the aquatic creatures on which trout feed, an author with 65 years of flyfishing experience, a selection of the world's best fly patterns — these are the ingrediants of this invaluable source of practical information. The artificial flies described and illustrated here have been tied and recommended by Jon Beer, Brian Clarke, Charles Jardine, Peter Gathercole, Mike Weaver and other top-class flyfishers.

Matching the hatch by using an artificial fly sufficiently similar to the creatures on which the trout are feeding can greatly increase your chances of success. This completely revised and updated pocket edition with enlarged photographs will help one choose suitable flies and suggest how one can fish them in a way that will catch fish – to rely less on luck and more on judgement.
