"Selective Trout outlined many of the most important mayfly hatches in the best-known trout-fishing regions, and from that solid entomological foundation it introduced a striking and still-provocative series of flies."
"The most important book on fly fishing of this decade."
"It's like a college degree for trout fisherman!"
