Anglers enjoy a huge, rich diversity of trout fishing throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. With this book, her fifth for Swan Hill Press, Lesley Crawford sets out to explain in detail how differing local trout tactics have evolved and just why these specialist skills remain so successful. There is a great deal of difference between taking a traditional drift on a vast Irish lough and threading a dry fly through the lush greenery of an English chalkstream, from stalking elusive Welsh sewin to making the best of Scottish mayfly fishing.
