Fly fishing lakes is fun and easy. Where else can you stalk big, surface-slurping trout amid uncrowded and often spectacular surroundings? Lakes are usually more generous than streams, and a productive lake is usually close to home. Once you have a successful lake fishing experience, you will want more. A basic understanding of lakes and the feeding habits of fish sets you up to enjoy some of the most exciting fresh-water angling to be found.

Loaded with information, diagrams, illustrations, and photos, Lake Fishing With a Fly is recognized as the best work on the subject. This book is guaranteed to save you decades of struggling and frustration, and propel you into the 10 percent of anglers who catch 90 percent of the fish. [via]
