A Guide to Eastern Species for Anglers and Other Naturalists
Reviews for Caddisflies
As caddis are the king of flying insects for Eastern fly fishers, Thomas Ames’s book shouts ‘Long live the king!’ This is an amazingly complete reference on one of the bugs fly fishers most commonly imitate with flies.
Fly Rod & Reel
The photographs and descriptions make identifying a caddisfly to the genus level as easy as using a standard field guide to the birds. Ames’s writing is just plain enjoyable to read, with crisp, clean prose and lots of the details that make for great natural history writing.
Orvis Rod & Tackle
This book is inspiring: it will inspire you to look more closely at your own caddis, wherever in the world you might fish for trout. And it will inspire you to tie some new patterns to match caddis and to get out there on water, where it all starts and ends, and put what Tom has taught you to use against the trout.
