Ephemeras represents the best display of entomology, art, and fly tying you could imagine. The unusually large photo plates of individual flies show the colors and detail needed by the tier. Tom Earnhardt, an especially competent American angler and photographer, has assisted Gaidy in making this book a marriage of the most effective American and European fly patterns for trout. - Bernard "Lefty" Kreh; 4to; 333,  pages; 169.
