The technique is similar to the "outrigger" high rod technique developed by Chuck Fothergill on the Roaring Fork near Aspen, Colorado. Fothergill used multiple weights (wrap- around lead spaced along the leader)whereas the fly or flies are weighted in the European (Czech,Polish,French,and UK )techniques. Unfortunately,the author fails to even mention Fothergill,s name or to give him any credit for a similar approach, -one as equally innovative in it's day- as the so-called "Czech" technique presently the rage.Charles Brooks also used a similar
method fishing in heavily weighted stonefly nymphs on the big waters in Montana. Again,no mention or credit to Brooks for his contribution to nymph fishing techniques.I could not find either man's name in the index.
There is a lot of reference made to angling competition amongst teams from the US and other countries,a practice with which I have a philosophical problem. I do not think that formal competitions are appropriate in fly fishing nor are they good for the sport but that is just my view. Others may feel differently of course.
I found a lot of good and useful information in the book,even though I do not buy
into the whole package advocated by the author.Read more ›
