All anglers want to catch big trout, but what exactly constitutes big? For author Bernie Taylor, truly big trout are measured in pounds, not inches. Taylor considers a big trout to be a brown or rainbow of eight pounds or more; a cutthroat of five pounds or better; or a brook trout exceeding four pounds. A widely traveled lecturer and fly-fishing instructor whose work has appeared regularly in Fly Fisherman and other national magazines, Taylor has written a unique and valuable book on specifically how to target these trout of true trophy proportions. Topics covered include locating waters likely to hold big trout; choosing the right equipment to take them; learning how big trout hunt their prey; determining the best times to fish; and honing the necessary angling skills. Included is a special section on innovative tactics and flies likely to produce trout of truly monstrous size.
There is even a special section on specific trophy trout waters throughout North America, including the best times of year and specific food sources of big trout in these waters.
Backed with extensive scientific research and a wealth of hands-on personal experience, illustrated with numerous photos and line drawings, Big Trout is sure to make every anglers quest for trophy fish more enjoyable and effective.
