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.

I think I have learned something from virtually every page. This book is absolutely fantastic and belongs on every fly fisherman's or fisherwoman's bookshelf.Published on June 17, 2011 by gsartz
Superb book. The author is the master of spring creek and tail waters and explains all that very well to the reader. Pictures are fantastic. Read morePublished on January 26, 2007 by Bill Wright
