Product Description


"In my opinion, [Ernest Schwiebert] was the most important figure of the 20th century in the fly-fishing world."  —Howell Raines, Pulitzer Prize–winner and former executive editor, New York Times

"Ernie Schwiebert, or simply Ernie, or 'Ernesto' as he was known to the fly-fishing fraternity, was a larger-than-life character who set his stamp on fly fishing forever."  — John Randolph, editor, Fly Fisherman

"Few books in the entire history of fishing literature have constituted such a startling advance. Nymphs now seems to me to stand alone as the most accomplished solo writer-artist contribution to fly-fishing literature. With words and art, this book opened the eyes of the next two generations of fly fishers"—Paul Schullery, author, American Fly Fishing: A History

"Just as nymphs and other aquatic macroinvertebrates are the ecological foundation of our trout streams, Schwiebert's classic book is the foundation of any well-educated angler's understanding of those waters. No other angling treatise provides as comprehensive a view of what occurs beneath the stream's surface as his."  —Charles Gauvin, President and CEO, Trout Unlimited

HASH(0x9c11da08) out of 5 stars Vital data for trouters July 30 2014
By Duane A. Dunham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book soon after it was published and its details and practical advice informed my knowledge of trout and what it took to fool them enormously. I was very suddenly a successful trout fisherman. The author is a learned man and a polished writer, making his work extremely valuable. Along with LaFontaine and a few others, he stands at the very heights of helpful data for those of us interested in fly fishing for trout.
HASH(0x9c349204) out of 5 stars A Must Read Classic! April 19 2016
By Christopher E. Bork - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Written in the 1950's while he was attending college, Schwiebert's observations and advice are timeless. From describing ten rise forms that describe the feeding habits of trout, to the insects they feed upon in detail, this book contains a wealth of information for the serious fly fisher. The illustrations of the may flies, caddis flies and other trout foods provide a fly tyer with accurate depictions to tie flies to match the hatch. In addition, fly patterns from the era of this book are also provided. Schwiebert writes in a style that includes fishing stories, observations and recommendations that make reading this book a delight. Along the way, the reader is likely to learn a great deal that will improve her or his enjoyment of the sport.
