The quintessential book on how, why and where to catch trout. The author’s dedication: To you all, the many good fellows I know and have fished with, and those whose paths may never cross mine except through the medium of these pages. This is my visit with you, our fishing adventure together. I trust it will be enjoyable, instructive, and memorable. When I am gone; when all who now read these pages have passed beyond, I hope that Trout will continue to live, perhaps to instill in future generations a love and understanding of angling.As new.
