Wyatt doesn't tiptoe around his complaint with fly fishing theory: the idea of trout selectivity is wrong. He challenges at least a century's worth of fishing convention by laying out clear evidence that trout are not intelligent creatures highly suspicious of our artificial flies. Trout simply don't have the ability to learn to any appreciable extent and are governed instead by instinct. Using this as a foundation he builds on the need for different fly design and better presentation as the cornerstones of successful fly fishing. An excellent book for those looking to expand their angling horizons. ~ Reviewed by Nate George
