Trout Hunting is for those who take flyfishing's traditions seriously, and for whom it is more than just a pastime. Bob Wyatt gets to the heart of the matter in a book packed with insight and challenges to conventional thinking. Well known to readers of Fly Fishing & Fly Tying magazine, Wyatt presents a wide-ranging and entertaining investigation of some of fly-fishing's central mysteries, including a fresh look at the theory of the 'selective trout'. Trout Hunting will help get your strategies organised and inspire reflection on the nature of this fascinating pursuit.
