Here are six feature-length articles, with photos, from fly-fishing luminary Skip Morris (author of such print-and-paper books as FLY TYING MADE CLEAR AND SIMPLE, WESTERN RIVER HATCHES, MORRIS & CHAN ON FLY FISHING TROUT LAKES and over 300 magazine articles). There's so much to learn here about fishing for trout in rivers, streams, and creeks. You’ll learn how to find and catch trout in massive Western rivers like the Deschutes, the Columbia, and the Lower Sacramento. At nearly the opposite end of the fly-fishing world, you’ll learn how to hook skittish 16-, 18-, and 20-plus-inch trout in rich spring creeks hardly wider than the fly rod you bring to them.
There’s more: micro-nymphing techniques, tactics, and rigs; midge fishing the evening rise in ways that help you find your tiny fly out there in the dusk and convince trout to take that fly; the fine points of making clean short casts and using them to tie you into trout you might otherwise miss; streamer fishing for big browns and rainbows without really trying.
There are stories here, brief and slipped in to illustrate important points, skillfully crafted stories that bring perspective to all the practical trout-river rigs, techniques, and strategies.
You’ll find no filler−no excerpts to sell books, no ads. What you will find are six concise feature-length articles that waste not a word. Fun to read and invaluable for fishing trout rivers. Learn. Enjoy!
