“Norman Marsh has written several books on trout fishing in the past. His best known are Trout Stream Insects In New Zealand and Norman Marsh’s Trout Fishing. He has a regular column in Rod and Rifle, New Zealand’s leading outdoor magazine. He needs no introduction to the estimated 200,000 trout fishermen and women in New Zealand.
In this book, he sets out to put into plain language the advances made over the past few years in trout fishing. Modern materials and technology have changed the tackle and techniques used to catch the wily trout. From simple things like leader-making using the new improved nylon lines now available, to techniques used to make modern space age material into the flies used to fool the trout.
In Norman’s fly box every fly can tell a story and Norman, a master teller of tales, uses the flies he ties to impart some of his lifetime store of knowledge about catching trout on a fly.”
