Description

Details

After centuries of observation, anglers are still trying to solve the mysteries of that magical instant when a trout takes a fly. The Rise, based on scientific research into trout feeding behaviour and the author's extraordinary photographic studies, provides many new clues. With unprecendented photographic clarity, Schullery reveals the subtleties of the trout's feeding behaviour, analyses the rise forms that puzzle us, and offers startline and reassuring insights into the lessons of rejection. Schullery challenges modern 'common knowledge', reconsiders neglected flies, ideas and tactics, and faces some of fly fishing's toughest questions with wit, patience and the happy conviction that the questions are more important than the answers anyway.

THE AUTHOR

Paul Schullery, an honoured naturalist who Trout Magazine hails as 'our pre-eminent angling historian,' lives in Bozeman, Montana. He also wrote American Fly Fishing.
