Since nymphs comprise more than 90 percent of a trout's normal diet, nymph imitations are potentially the most effective flies for trout —particularly large fish that rarely feed on the surface. Yet nymph fishing remains one of the most difficult and demanding forms of fly-fishing, often shrouded in mystery or half knowledge. NYMPH FISHING FOR LARGER TROUT will take its place as one of the few real contributions to this important phase of angling. It is a down-to-earth, practical, and highly perceptive book for all fly-fishermen who want to improve their skills. Charles Brooks—already widely acclaimed for his practical, outspoken, and original books on angling—has written a thorough guide to nymph fishing. There are chapters on "The Problem of Identification" and the "Characteristic Nymphs, Larvae, and Crustaceans." After a helpful guide to the best tackle you will need, he presents in depth the Skues, Hewitt, Sawyer, Leisenring, Upstream, Continuous Drift, Pot-Shooting, and other methods—and then his own, the Brooks method. He places special emphasis on catching those larger trout we all seek, and presents a full treatment of the most effective patterns. Graced by Dave Whitlock's fine line drawings, superb photographs of water types, and four pages of flies in color, NYMPH FISHING FOR LARGER TROUT is sure to become one of the most important books in the fly-fisherman's library.

This is a classic book written by the late Charles Brooks. Mind you there will be no discussion of modern nymphing tactics like Czech, Polish or Spanish nymphing. The author will share proven nymph tactics and the stories that are woven in a fashion to help you cement the lessons being learned in your mind. The fly patterns recipes are classic Charlie Brooks. Tied in the round. Great book for a list of patterns used or tied by C. Brooks. If you're a fan of Joe Humphrey's book titled Trout Tactics, I can almost guarantee you will want this book sitting on the bookshelf in your library. Well illustrated. Very nice color plates of the flies.
