What does it take to have success when stalking trout with a fly rod? There are the obvious elements of the fly, the presentation, and reading the water properly. But what about those factors brought on by Mother Nature in the form of weather, climate, and the water itself? Finding Trout in All Conditions: A Guide to Understanding Nature's Forces for Better Production on the Water is a comprehensive examination of those parts of the natural world that impact trout, trout food and forage, and fly fishing. This book provides valuable insight into how trout and the food they eat are influenced by barometric pressure, precipitation, air and water temperature, wind, sunlight and cloud cover, moon phase, and water-related factors like water levels, pH, dissolved oxygen levels, and specific conductance. Special attention is given to strategies and tactics anglers should employ when specific conditions are predominant. The reader is left with a greater awareness of how success on the water is impacted by these often overlooked elements of the natural world. Research for this book is based on the author’s thirty-plus years of guiding and fishing around the world and his conversations and experiences with some of the best anglers and guides in the sport.
