Format: Hardcover
Within the corpus of technical American fly-fishing literature an innovative and influential text on the finer aspects of flat-water trout angling eludes us. For years I anxiously awaited "Spring Creeks" and had automatically incucted Lawson into the "KLM club" (i.e. the best American fly-fishing authors to date: Kreh, LaFontaine, and Marinaro). Unfortunately, this book is a missed opportunity and certianly does not deserve a "must read" distinction.
Why have I elected to write such a harsh criticism of Lawson's "Spring Creeks?" Foremost, Lawson has been working on this project for a long time (10 or more years I belive), which provides ample opportunity for critical and innovative research. Additionally, he has the best labratory imaginable--Harriman State Park on the Henry's Fork. These two factors, I argue, should have resulted in something new and profound (e.g. fly design theory pertaining to flat-water trout, technical "how to" features that expand upon current tactics, unique insect and trout behavior, and more) but "Spring Creeks" is largely anecdotal and undisciplined; more importantly, it does not expand upon the previous contributions provided by other authors. A beautiful book it is, a fine addition to any angling library--sure, but a text that consumes one's free time--no.

This is a fantastic book for those seeking to build a deeper understanding of the ecology, entomology and fly fishing techniques for spring creeks and tailwaters. The book is so informative that its information is useful for any type of trout water. The author writes in an understandable and enjoyable way. This is a nice bonus since some of the more advanced fly fishing books tend to get ponderous. This one does not. A great book and a proud addition to my library!

Mike Lawson is awesome. Spring Creeks is a comprehensive treatise on how to fish spring creeks, tailwaters, ckalk streams, and limestone creeks.
