Format: Paperback
This is not only a great streamside reference but nice to keep near the fly tying bench when attempting to match the hatch. There are excellent high quality photos of the bugs on the left hand side with info about the bugs habitat, etc... Also you get pictures of at least three corresponding flies with tips on how to fish them. The book covers Caddis, Mayflies, Stones, Terrestrials. I fish mainly in North Carolina and find the book extremely helpful.

Great little book. The best thing is that it is concise and to the point. The left page shows the natural and the right page shows the different variants of the artificial...perfect. Descriptions include taxonomy, size, colour and morphology, hatch period, time and location. Other pockets of information are offered in the handy and invaluable reference. Best regards, GLA.

A streamside gem Dec 16 2006
By J. A. Canfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This little book is unique. It combines high quality photos of most of the New England streamside insects trout love to eat with examples of imitations we hope they'll try. The author, a professional photogapher, avid fly fisherman and amateur entomologist, has devised means to capture the appearance of these tasty bugs in perfect detail as they develop from their origins on the stream bottom to their emerging stages in the biologic drift to their mature forms, winged and mating on and above the surface. This book fits in a zip lock sandwich baggy in your hip pocket, and paired with your curiosity on the water, you will get streamside bug savvy and catch more trout.

Makes Me Feel Like An Expert Nov. 23 2009
By Randy Kadish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I simply don't have the time to make an in-depth study to entomology. With this book I don't feel a need to. It has chapters on the basic techniques of fishing Wets, Dries, Nymphs, which I find very helpful. But what makes this book special is that Mr. Ames devotes a full page to each stage of most northeast flies, and describes where and when those insects can be found, how they behave, and how they can be caught.

Before I head to the stream, I simply read up on the insects I expect to find and, therefore, have a solid game plan in place when I step into the water.

Also, the photography of the flies is great.

This is one of the most used fly-fishing books I own.

Most important Fly Fishing book I own June 4 2012
By peconicgp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can not think of a more important book (for those who live in the New England) for some one looking to improve their fly fishing. Once you learn how to cast and wade into water the very next step is learning how to identify your bugs. Not only does it provide the standard pics of the bugs but it also explains their cycles and provides the corresponding flies to use during the different stages.

This is a perfect gift for any fly fisherman you know. If you fly fish and don't have this book and live in the New England buy this book now. Best investment I have made in my fly fishing hands down!

This guide will helps the newbies as well as the expert! Mr. Ames packs it full of info for a 6x4" guide, waisted no space and can easily fit in a vest pocket!
