If you flyfish, you will want to know the many different behaviors of trout. Knowing these things will increase you ability as a fly fisherman and this book will help you get there. This book has a lot of invaluable information, written in such a way it was a pleasure to discover each and every pearl. Excellant addition to anyone's library.

This book is fantastic in hardcopy, however the Kindle version is crippled with horrible conversion of the color photos to black and white. The photos - at least on the iPad Kindle app - are very dark and not useful. Much of the information in the book relies on Mr. Schullery's fantastic trout feeding photos. Buy the hardcopy or wait for the iPad iBook.

I purchased the traditional book version for a good friend. I had read the down loaded version on my iPad. While I loved reading the iPad version, and the iPad's ability to enlarge pictures is especially useful with this book, it should have the color photos that the paper book has. I wish there could be a color update for those of us who have purchased the electronic version.

Informative, and thoughtful also. Makes ya learn AND ponder! I would reccommend this book not only to anyone interested in the facts of how trout eat, but also to anyone who just likes to read about fly fishing, trout, rivers, people, et al, and how they mesh togather seperately. Sometimes. Get the book. You won't recret it. Great pictures too!

More About the Author

Paul Schullery writes about nature, especially about the history of our relationship with it and the wonder it still holds for us today. He is the author, co-author, or editor of more than forty books and hundreds of articles. Paul was born in Middletown, Pennsylvania, in 1948. He has an M.A. in American History from Wittenberg University, a B.A. in American History from Ohio University, and an honorary doctorate of letters from Montana State University.
At various times since 1972, Paul has worked for the National Park Service in Yellowstone as a ranger-naturalist, historian-archivist, environmental protection specialist, senior editor in the Yellowstone Center for Resources, and chief of cultural resources. He retired from the National Park Service in 2008, but continues to write, publish, and speak on a variety of topics.
Paul and his spouse, the artist Marsha Karle, have collaborated as author and illustrator on five of his books, most recently This High Wild Country: A Celebration of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.
Paul's other books about nature include The Bears of Yellowstone, The Grand Canyon, American Bears, Mountain Time, Searching for Yellowstone, America's National Parks, Real Alaska, and Lewis and Clark Among the Grizzlies. He has written for dozens of popular and technical publications, ranging from the Encyclopedia Brittanica Yearbook of Science and the Future and BioScience to The New York Times and Outdoor Life.
During one of the times when he was not working in Yellowstone, Paul was executive director of The American Museum of Fly Fishing, in Manchester, Vermont, from 1977 to 1982. His series of books on the history and culture of fly fishing includes American Fly Fishing, Shupton's Fancy, Royal Coachman, Cowboy Trout, The Rise, If Fish Could Scream, and Fly-Fishing Secrets of the Ancients. He has received several honors for this work, including the Federation of Fly Fishers' Roderick Haig-Brown Award.
Among other awards, Paul is the recipient of an honorary doctorate of letters from Montana State University, the Wallace Stegner Award from the University of Colorado Center of the American West, a Panda Award for scriptwriting from Wildscreen International, and the Communications Award from the George Wright Society.
Paul wrote and narrated the 2002 PBS film "Yellowstone: America's Sacred Wilderness." He served as an advisor and interviewee for the Ken Burns film "The National Parks," broadcast in 2009.
Since 2009, Paul has been scholar-in-residence at the Montana State University Library.
