This is not a beginning flyfishing book. No discussion of knots, how to tie the flies, how to play and land the fish, etc. It assumes you know these things, and focuses on the methodology one should use to analyze a lake and thereby make their plan of action for catching trout. It emphasizes that the plan is nothing, because conditions change often throughout the day; but it also emphasizes that the planning is everything. I believe that General Eisenhower made the same wise discovery during WW II!
If you are a serious fly fisher, and want to take your fishing strategy to the next level, this is the book for you. Even if you don't agree with every assertion Mr. Lockhart makes, you will come away from the book knowing you have read the mind of a master, and that it is chock full of things you need to think about.
I don't rate many fly fishing books a full 5 stars! This one, however, deserves it. I will re-read it at the start of each season just to refresh my memory of all the new ways to solve the riddles of stillwater trout fishing.
If you are looking to take the next step beyond arriving at the waters edges and huckin' a chunk of hackle out and hoping for a fish, you'll want to read this book! Well priced and lots of info.
