The Bug Book: A Fly Fisher’s Guide to Trout Stream Insects Product Review

The Bug Book: A Fly Fisher’s Guide to Trout Stream Insects is a fantastic introduction to the aquatic entomology for the trout angler. If you’re feeling confused about the insects that you’re seeing on the water, this is the perfect book for you.

Whether you’re an experienced or novice angler or if you simply want to increase your knowledge of aquatic insects and their imitations, you’ll get tons of useful and interesting information from The Bug Book.

The author, Paul Weamer features a plethora of unique beautiful bug photographs and the content is non-technical and focuses on the information that you need to become a stronger fly fisher.

Weamer successfully breaks down the barriers between beginner and entomologist in a conversational tone and explains when and why identifying insects is both practical and fun. The author starts with the limnology of rivers and waters and helps you to understand the characters of everything from spring creeks to reservoirs and ponds.

From sowbugs and scuds to aquatic worms and crane flies, you’ll quickly learn how to identify what you’re seeing on a stream and your best option for imitating it.
