John Goddard's Trout-Fishing Techniques

Practical Fly-Fishing Solutions From An International Master


Book Description

JOHN GODDARD'S TROUT-FISHING TECHNIQUES is the distillation of more than a half century of fly-fishing wisdom by a master. Goddard focuses on fly fishing for trout, and includes chapters on tackle; the trout's senses; casting to, hooking, and playing trout; where to find trout in both rivers and lakes; trout foods; and fishing with wet flies, dry flies, and nymphs.
A special section thoroughly covers the methods necessary for catching trout in stillwaters. In addition, Goddard offers full tying recipes for many of his original patterns, including the world-famous Goddard Caddis.
