Fly fishing For Trout is one of life's great passions and has been the motivation that helped Mick O'Farrell create a remarkable range of trout flies encompassing his three favoured disciplines; dry-fly, wet-fly and nymph. It has also provided the impetus for writing A Passion For Trout - his first book.
It chronicles one man's journey, from an eight-year old boy helping his father on the banks of the River Suir, to becoming a successful fly-fisher and fly-tyer in his own right. He has enlightened us with a rich deiversity of fly patterns. More than 400 are illustrated in a series of colour plates, each complemented with a full 'recipe' of the materials used - an important aid to the reader, allowing each fly to be tied exactly as the author intended. Additionally, in the section on Flies and fly-tying, there are step-by-step photo sequences showing in close detail exactly how Mick creates four of his successful patterns.
Threaded through the advice on flies and techniques are personal anecdotes, some amusing and others with a more cautionary message. Any angler who might be tempted to throw caution to the wind when venturing out on a large lake, would do well to read the section titled Behaving Like An Idiot.
A Passion For Trout provides a comprehensive insight into modern fly development with an emphasis on an imitative approach, and will appeal to both stillwater and river anglers alike.
