It's a sad fact of fly-fishing that there is no prescriptive manual for ensuring success. It is an activity that defies simple evaluation, with enough variables to leave even the 'experts' scratching their heads from time to time. For example, why is it that a trout will respond to a certain fly one day, but ignore it entirely in identical conditions on another day?
Acclaimed fly-fishing author Philip Weigall attempts to answer this question and many more in this engaging book. In his words, it is a book of 'fly-fishing truths', a collection of techniques, ideas, concepts, knowledge and equipment that, to the best of his objective observations over many decades spent with a rod in hand, honestly seem to matter when it comes to catching trout.
Philip Weigall lives with his partner and two young sons near Ballarat, Victoria. He is a flyfishing guide and instructor at Millbrook Lakes, and otherwise fishes and travels as often as he can. Philip has been writing regularly on all things flyfishing for twenty years and is presently a columnist and feature writer for Freshwater Fishing magazine, and editor-at-large for Flyfisher magazine. Fishing Season is his sixth book.
