Stalking Trophy Brown Trout

A Fly-Fisher's Guide to Catching the Biggest Trout of Your Life


Book Description

The brown trout—the most secretive, most aggressive member of the trout family—is an enigma among freshwater fish. If you fish with a fly, you already know that these creatures are objects of endless fascination. After a lifetime fishing the West, John Holt now catches more than a half-dozen huge browns each year, each weighing more than five pounds. With detailed descriptions of his unusual techniques, and with some surprising, often counterintuitive revelations about what works and what doesn’t, this book passes along all the author’s secrets.
