On Sale: Skip's E-Book on Top Twelve Nymphs

Skip's popular Kindle e-book, Top Twelve Nymphs for Trout Streams, How, When, and Where to Fish Them, is now on sale for $0.99...(soon $2.99). If you want to thank us for this special price, we'd love to have you review this e-book on Amazon.

This is the blurb on the book:

Here, Skip Morris, the author of 18 print-and-paper books on fly fishing, guides you through 12 great nymph-flies for catching trout in creeks, streams, and rivers, along with a color photograph of every fly. Skip tells you all about each fly—what it imitates, what it’s designed to do, what it does do in the water—and then he tells you how to fish it effectively, when it fishes best, how deep in the water to fish it, and offers the different fishing methods that make it catch fish.

He describes those methods plainly, so you can go right out and make them work. He even provides a chart to help you select the right fly for specific fishing conditions and choose the best method for presenting that fly to the trout.

Top 12 Nymphs for Trout Streams, How, When, and Where to Fish Them contains a bit over 21,000 words, but also includes 22 color photographs showing all the flies and the creatures they imitate, and a couple of shots just to make you sigh and smile—one of a gorgeous cutthroat trout and the other a grand scenic of fishing a Montana trout river.

Figuring out trout flies is overwhelming for the new fly fisher and confusing enough for the old pro. Let Skip guide you through 12 great nymphs and how, when, and where to fish them. And it’s an entertaining read besides.
