Flies That Catch Trout

Lawrence Chrstie


Finding the right fly to use is one of the more intriguing challenges of fly fishing for trout.


The type of water, time of year and even the time of day all influence fly selection. What natural foods are available what imitates them and how to present the fly all comes into the equation?


Using skills developed in the Research and Development departments of industry the author has developed a logical approach to fly selection that allows for the many and variable problems that confront the angler. Presented in a handy pocket size with colour illustrations of the most successful flies easily available everywhere in New Zealand. Cross-referenced by water type and time of year.


This is an invaluable aid to novice and expert alike, because it contains the collective wisdom of many anglers, presented in an intelligent format that really simplifies fly selection.


Originally published in 1991 the book has been reprinted in 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, and 2003.  This 2006 edition has been revised and updated to reflect current availability of the flies that catch trout.
