Format: Hardcover
This book is just an outstanding value. I remember when $40 was the going rate for the new high-end fly fishing/tying/entomology - related hard covers. Now we're up to $60. At under $20 and with the ideas this book encapsulates, it's a steal.

In less monetary terms...

With a serious tilt toward the on-edge tail water and spring creek fisherman, I do not think anyone from such a background could read "Fishing Small Flies" and not walk away feeling downright enlightened. Mr. Engle has embedded a rhythm to the book, candidly relating on-stream experiences at the beginning of each major topic that in themselves deliver a potent dose of small fly philosophy. The ensuing material is all the more palatable given his clear, concise, and down to earth style of writing.

I will confess I thought some of the topics were covered with unnecessary length. Perhaps having spent an inordinate amount of time nymphing throughout my fly fishing career, I found the time spent on nymph rigging to be overly long in duration. I have also spent plenty of time casting fruitlessly to rising fish and experimenting with a large array of slack-line casts, my education in this department being provided by many other articles of fishing literature. Of course, I also have to admit that even in these sections I probably found at least one or two informational nuggets that I had not learned previously.

Regardless of these minor hurdles, the knowledge imparted throughout the book is more than worth the price of admission. The anatomy of a small-fly river, spotting and observing fish, reading rise forms, freestyle nymphing, and the dynamics of the particular small-fly hatches - all of these topics had me staring wide-eyed off into space at the revelations they precipitated.

This book covers the greatest amount of information on fly fishing for trout that I have ever read. This is an excellent book for the beginning to the advanced fisherman and the techniques are applicable to any size fly.
