A technical treatise regarding the trout's vision and its implications for fly-fishers, made understandable and highly readable by the author's lively prose, this was Connett's last book, published eight years before his death in 1969. Of this book, Siegel says: "Connett's last work as an author, and perhaps his best, was 'My Friend the Trout'. Reflecting by then almost fifty years' experience as an accomplished trout angler, Connett approached this work from the trout's point of view rather than that of the angler. The result...is ONE OF THE MOST INNOVATIVE BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED IN AMERICAN ANGLING LITERATURE. [Emphasis added]. This is one book which every trout angler should read".
A fine copy of an angling classic.
