Excerpt from Floating Flies and How to Dress Them: A Treatise on the Most Modern Methods of Dressing Artificial Flies for Trout and Grayling A Few years ago I consulted a professional fly-dresser as to the best means of learning to make artificial flies, to enable me to produce imitations of the natural insects sufficiently good to serve as patterns, and was seriously, and, I believe, without "arrière pensée", assured by him that it was impossible for an Amateur to acquire the art otherwise than by taking a series of lessons at a considerable cost. Having always been an unbeliever in the word impossible I determined to try and teach myself. Accordingly, with a copy of Ronalds' "Fly Fisher's Entomology" opened before me, and a few indispensable materials, I commenced trying to puzzle out the mysteries of the craft. After many attempts, and almost as many failures, I succeeded in turning out something remotely akin in form and colour to the Red Spinner illustrated in that admirable treatise, and was further encouraged by finding a grayling sufficiently silly to take this bad imitation.

Volume I For the fly fisher seeking to catch more and bigger trout, fishing nymphs--patterns that mimic the larval stage of mayflies--can be a surefire approach. Nymphs: The Mayflies, the first volume in a totally revised edition of the 1973 original, is the singular authority on identifying the myriad species of mayfly larvae and tying imitations that will attract trout all across the country. Author Ernest G. Schwiebert spent the last fifty years of his life traveling, fishing, and gathering information on scores of mayfly species across the country. The 1973 edition of Nymphs set forth his initial findings. Now in this wholly revised and expanded form, Schwiebert's last work offers the reader exacting details of every major mayfly species for the sake of identification, along with recipes for dozens of fly patterns to imitate them. This new edition also contains numerous stories and anecdotes from Schwiebert's travels, some never set down in writing before, that further add to the understanding of how to choose, cast, and fish nymphs, and life.
