Denny Rickards fished over 300 lakes before writing his book. He clearly lays out the differences between flyfishing streams vs. lakes. He then presents a thoroughly researched systematic approach that even those new to the sport can use. He has honed his list of must have flies down to 6 that produce all over the world. There are many new insights here that will help you get into a lot more fish. If you have not done well on lakes in the past, this is the book for you! A wonderful read.

Format: Hardcover
This book offers some great tips on techniques and patterns for catching stillwater trout. Although the book is targeted towards catching "trophy" trout, I've found the techniques described work equally well for trout that are of less than trophy status. Most of my stillwater fishing is on hike-in lakes in the mountains and after reading this book I now almost exclusively fish clear intermediate lines with one of a handful of patterns. In terms of presentation, Rickards calls for experimentation with speed of retrieve on full sinking lines. In terms of flies, Rickards advocates suggestive patterns rather than any sort of 'match-the-hatch' philosophy. He argues that stillwater trout are attracted to the life-like movement of the fly rather than a specific match. Since reading this book I primarily use either the AP Emerger or Seal Bugger with a clear intermediate line and a variety of slow retrieves. The results have been fantastic!

Denny capitalizes on showing the reader how to quickly catch trophy trout in stillwaters. He cuts to the point quickly and delivers the qickest, most successful methods in catching trophy trout with a flyrod. Denny also explores the essentials for finding trophy waters and locating trophy fish. A must read book for this century's crowded water flyfisherman
