Author, angler, and photographer Thomas Ames Jr. traveled from the southern Appalachian highlands to the Canadian Maritimes to collect, study, and photograph more than 100 species in 55 genera and 20 families of the caddisflies that fly fishers are most likely to encounter on the lakes and streams of the eastern United States. Learn how you can use the ways in which these amazing insects have adapted to a wide range of aquatic habitats to predict which flies to choose. And learn how to present your flies when fish are feeding on caddisflies. Detailed descriptions and vivid photographs help identify the caddisflies on your favorite trout waters.

2 Ames, Thomas Jr.Fishbugs; 0881506753 / 9780881506754, New Book
2005 The Countryman Press; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Very Good+ Hardcover, in Very Good+ DJ
(Synopsis) For centuries anglers have struggled with their peculiar dependency on the aquatic insects that put the word fly in fly fishing, discoursing obsessively on how to replicate them with fur & feathers, and even about what to call them. Volumes have been written on the subject, but until now, there has never been a book like Fishbugs. Author Thomas Ames Jr. lets his photographic skills take center stage. His bigger-then life studies of mayflies, caddisflies, and other waterborne insects, captured in extraordinary detail, allow you see them as never before. Fly tyers will appreciate them as models for their imitations, while naturalists & other lovers of nature photography admire them for their intrinsic beauty. His thoughtful prose examines the special characteristics that keep these fascinating insects at the heart of the angler's gentle art & underscores their value as indicators of the health of our inland waters., AB00508.
