Loved the book, it's beautiful, and loaded with great information. Read it cover to cover now I will refer back as a reference. I live in CT and mainly fish small streams so this book is invaluable.
Fantastic Book -
By: Argo from Atlanta, GA
Yet another fantastic book by Tom Rosenbauer, this book has great advice and beautiful photography that has earned it a permanent place on my coffee table. The chapters are logically organized, starting with how to find small streams and ending with care and ethics for small water areas. The book contains great information on fly selection, approach, and fighting the tireless enemy that is drag. As someone who avidly fishes the small streams in the southern Appalachians, I am glad that Tom took time to outline information relevant to the southern fly fisher, as many other books sadly focus more on northern and western areas. I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys fly fishing.

This is a fantastic, well-written, very informative book about fishing small streams, which is much harder than most people think it is. Tom makes the information very easy to digest with very little personal bias about how to fish small streams. Excellent read. Pick one up!

An excellent book for easy explanation, wonderful pictures, and just the right amount of technical information-- you can get as complex as you want, or just remember the basics. An enjoyable book.

I purchased this book because most of Michigan's rivers are closer to streams then big open rivers. The information Tom provided is worth its weight in gold. This book focuses on many different aspects of stream fishing. Some topics that are covered:effects of climate, terrain, surrounding vegitation, human activity, casting techniques, go to flies, and much more. If you've never picked up one of Tom Rosenbauer's books, your missing out on one of the best fly fishing authors/teachers ever. I could not put this book down. The way he writes gives the reader the impression that he his talking to you face to face. I ended up purchasing "The Orvis Pocket Guide to Nymphing" by Tom Rosenbauer after and was impressed by that read also.
