Synopsis
Book of spectacular full-color photos of common eastern aquatic insects is a fly tyer's dream. This is macro photography on steroids! Full-color t/out; 11x10 inches, 144 pgs.

More Information
For centuries anglers have struggled with their peculiar dependency on the aquatic insects that put the word "fly" in fly fishing, discoursing obsessively on how to replicate them with fur & feathers, and even about what to call them. Volumes have been written on the subject, but until now, there has never been a book like Fishbugs.

Following the success of his first book, hailed as "the most useful book for eastern fly fishers since Art Flick's Streamside Guide, author Thomas Ames Jr. lets his photographic skills take center stage. His bigger-then life studies of mayflies, caddisflies, and other waterborne insects, captured in extraordinary detail, allow you see them as never before. Fly tyers will appreciate them as models for their imitations, while naturalists & other lovers of nature photography admire them for their intrinsic beauty. His thoughtful prose examines the special characteristics that keep these fascinating insects at the heart of the angler's gentle art & underscores their value as indicators of the health of our inland waters.
