Art Flick’s New Streamside Guide to Naturals and Their Imitations; the definitive guide from the renowned fly-fishing master.
A handsome new illustrated edition of the classic by Art Flick, the man who gave American fly fishers their first useable, portable text for “matching the hatch” at streamside. Still a classic for anglers old and new, the Streamside Guide is the highly readable handbook to the major mayfly species of the eastern seaboard, providing step-by-step instructions for identifying these insects and selecting the proper flies. Flick’s masterful text is a key to his beloved Catskills rivers, the epicenter of American fly fishing. This classic work has photos throughout, in black and white with a full-color insert. (4 X 6 3/4, 176 pages, color photos, b&w photos, charts)
