Just got the email from Penn State Univ. Press that this has been published--Common Nymphs of Eastern North America. Another book about bugs that I may need. The link:

Sorry, i can't seem to make the link hot.

I just got my copy. Very impressed with the quality of the photos. I especially like the photos of what they look like and the imitation. Can't wait to sit down and start reading it. Got it on Amazon.

What is the layout of the book? Like chapter 1 - baetis - naturals and tying? I have bought a few really good books recently and just wonder how much it will expand on those books. I'd like to know more once you have put in some time with the book. Thanks.

Jdaddy,
As I read more it is broken down by chapter family - caddis, mayfly, etc.

A fair amount of info on the bugs themselves in addition to a pic of the insect as well as a pic of the suggested pattern(recipes are in the rear of the book in a seperate appendix) So far just am in to the caddis section. Not bad, but could get bogged down by bug names.

If you get up my way just give me advance notice and I will bring it to the office.

It is a spiral bound book as well, great for on the tying desk.

I don't think you will be sorry. You can never have enough reading material!

Well, I gotta be honest. It may be because I am a book nerd and have a pile of 'em or some other factor, however I am totally unimpressed with the book. The spiral binding is a nice feature which one would look for in a tying book, which it is not. Very thick, glossy and durable pages. Maybe it is the fact that so much info, photos, etc are available on the interwebz now a days. I don't know.

Sorry it was a let down for you. Maybe I enjoyed seeing some of the fly patterns that I was not used to seeing. I did enjoy the read.
