Larger fish and an exacting new challenge are the lures to what may be one of the trout fisherman’s last frontiers. This book explores this exciting new frontier which has been sadly neglected in previous fly-fishing literature. There are important chapters on the ecology and entomology of lakes- in the East, in alpine regions, and in the West, and thorough and practical information on the proper gear and techniques for this type of fishing, including the use of canoes, prams and the popular float tubes.
