“This book got me excited about doing more still water fishing. It gave me the techniques and filled in the missing puzzle pieces to become a better still water angler. I believe the book has something from the beginner to the more advanced angler. The photography was great. I will keep this book in my collection to review each season.”  Patrick Allen, WA

“Just bought “Effective Stillwater Fly Fishing: An Analytical Approach,” brand new from Michael Gorman (30+ year guide and fly fishing teacher at Oregon State University). . . . . and this book has a lot to offer. The photos alone are numerous and first rate, including a multitude of close-ups of flies and actual trout foods. Chironomid entomology, imitation and methods of presentation are thoroughly covered, as are night fishing, “getting over the hump” for non-stillwater guys, and recommended equipment and fly patterns to name a few.  Nicely polished, and certainly makes its own unique contributions to lake fishing. Well done.”
