The Orvis Pocket Guide to Stillwater Fly-fishing Techniques (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Readily accessible to most fly anglers and often producing fish of trophy proportions, stillwaters are among the most productive, but also the most challenging, trout waters in which to wet a line. Ponds and lakes undergo many moods and changes throughout the year. Fishing them requires in-depth knowledge of how and where trout feed in stillwaters in the different seasons, as well as the proper equipment, techniques and fly patterns necessary to ensure consistent success under changing circumstances. In this guide, Jim Lepage demystifies the challenges of lakes and ponds, which can seem huge and overwhelming until you know how to approach them correctly. He presents successful and safe methods for fishing from boats, canoes and float tubes, as well as how to wade silently and intelligently and plan your approach. Individual chapters present in-depth know-how for fishing stillwaters in all four seasons.

Finally, a complete run-down on stillwater entomology and useful fly patterns provides a wealth of information on mayflies, caddisflies, midges and other diptera, terrestrials, stoneflies, damsel- and dragonflies, as well as streamers, leeches and crayfish, along with recommended fly patterns, colours and sizes.
