Description: Fly fishing surveys have shown that anglers all rate solitude and the quality fishing experience very highly. With this in mind, Ron Giles has written “ Hooked on Trout” . It profiles what he regards as twenty of New Zealand’s best trout fishing rivers and lakes. They are not necessarily the best known, or most productive, but they all offer quality fishing in the form of solitude and the opportunity to catch a trophy trout.
In each chapter, Ron includes such information as how to get there, which techniques best suit the water found there, fly tying instructions and anecdotal information based on his own experience, all of which will enable anglers to get the most out of a day on the water. Comprehensive maps and informative photographs make this an invaluable resource for anglers who wish to improve their skills.

“Beware of taking to collecting books on angling. You will find yourself become so attached to the fascinating hobby, that you would, if necessary, pawn the shirt off your back to collect some coveted edition.”
