Trout Country Flies
Drawing on both historical and current information, Bruce Staples shares all you need to know to successfully fish and tie flies for Trout Country--Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. The patterns discussed are certainly not all those created in this region. Those given, however, have significance. Either they are or have been popular, employ unusual techniques or materials, introduce a tying technique, are inspired by a specific Trout country location, or they commemorate a person who has made a significant contribution to the area's fly-fishing heritage. Discussions for the flies include information on construction, inspiration, and use of the fly. Fly types covered; caddisfly adult, larvae, and pupae patterns; crane fly patterns; damselfly and dragonflies; dry attractors; mayfly duns, emergers, nymphs, and spinners; midges; stillwater and leech patterns; stonefly adults and nymphs; streamers; terrestrials; wet flies and attractors.
