More Information:
Bring a neophyte fly-fisher to a river and ask him where to find fish. While likely overlooking some hotspots, he will generally point out others. Ask the same question about a lake or pond & you can usually expect a blank stare. The visual clues are there, just camouflaged. Stillwater Fly Fishing - Tools & Tactics exposes those clues as essential ingredients in the recipe for all successful angling; find feeding fish & feed them.

To follow a recipe, one needs utensils and a few skills. The first three chapters offer suggestions & options including:
* tackle & special casts
* suitable water-craft for fly-fishing
* standard & innovative retrieves

Once all the hardware questions are answered, it's on to finding those feeding fish. Part II examines four major sets of clues: the structure of the stillwater, e.g. islands, flats, weedbeds, inlets & outlets; the short and long-term effects of the winds, or lack thereof; the available foodforms in different areas and at various seasons; and a potpourri of clues such as bird activity & water temperature.

Depending on conditions, you may have visual confirmation that the search is successful or just confidence in your deductions. Either way, the time has come to put it all together and catch fish. Part III, nearly half the book, presents the ways & means. These are divided into: visual & searching methods; special methods for chironomids; night fishing; and finally, a selection of patterns with recipes that the author has found effective. Trout are the primary target, but the principles apply to all species.
