"The Harrop family pedigree is priceless, and readers of this journal will know of this writers admiration for the Harrop style and approach.  Attention to detail is what the best of fishing is about, and Rene Harrop gives us detail by the lorry load.  For that reason alone this is not a book that requires cover-to-cover reading.  Any chapter will suffice to sate the most needy of appetites, such is the intensity of information.  It matters not that this is a water specific work - the Henry's Fork - in the USA, the approach is such that situations are relative, and it could be your river or stream, although I doubt your river can boast a Millionaires Pool! Okay, so some of the flies described do not directly relate to our fishing in this country, but the approach cannot be faulted, in fact, it is faultless.  Tactics can be related, and in this Rene Harrop is a supreme practitioner...  I cannot recommend this book more highly".  Flydresser, The Flydresser's Guild
