For 30 years, Denny Rickards has fished, guided, studied and unraveled the mysteries of catching trophy trout on flies in hard-fished public waters, one of the most difficult challenges facing stillwater anglers around the world.
As a result of fishing under these difficult conditions, Denny narrowed his fly selection to 6 suggestive patterns for most of his fishing, honed his techniques for locating exceptional trout, sharpened his retrieve skills, and refined his presentations into a practical, easily mastered stillwater system for catching huge trout in lakes, reservoirs, and ponds.
This system has accounted for rainbows over 15 pounds, cutthroats to 13 pounds and browns to 23 pounds. This book will cover the flies he uses along with the best nymphs, dry flies and streamers for stillwater. His first 2 books, Fly Fishing Stillwaters for Trophy Trout & Fly Fishing the West's Best Trophy Lakes have become bestsellers on the subject of stillwater fly fishing. Denny can also be seen as one of several hosts for Fly Fish TV Magazine on the Outdoor Life Television Network. The patterns he uses are described in this book along with key tips from his stillwater system regarding tackle, fly patterns, and presentation techniques.
Based on Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, Denny fished more than 400 lakes while researching this book and developing his stillwater system.
