Even after centuries of observation, anglers are still trying to solve the mysteries of that magical instant when a trout takes a fly. The Rise, based on recent scientific research into trout feeding behavior and the author’s extraordinary photographic studies, provides many new clues.

With unprecedented photographic clarity, Schullery reveals the subtleties of the trout’s feeding behavior, analyzes the riseforms that puzzle us, and offers startling and reassuring insights into the lessons of rejection. Schullery challenges modern “common knowledge”; reconsiders neglected flies, ideas, and tactics; and faces some of fly fishing‘s toughest questions with wit, patience, and the happy conviction that the questions are more important than the answers anyway.
