Preface: For the avid fly fisherman, New Zealand has long been recognised as offering a trout fishing experience which is second to none. The large browns and rainbows that inhabit the clear, pristine waters of her rivers and lakes are truly wild and wily, and only the most resourceful anglers do well consistently.

In New Zealand's Best Trout Flies, 30 of the most successful anglers from around the country share with us their thoughts and reminiscences of six of their favourite fly patterns. Every fly is accompanied by details for tying and a colour photograph.

Some of the contributors are professional fly tyers or are regularly consulted by major fly fishing tackle concerns, and their patterns are widely sought after. Many have also been actively engaged in competition fly fishing at some stage in their career and have travelled and fished extensively overseas. The chapters also cover the use of innovative techniques and flies not often considered in the New Zealand context.

This book will be a wonderful companion for trout fishers, beginners and experts alike.
