    The coolest thing about Homo sapiens is that they learned to use innovation and invention to eliminate and neutralize deficiencies. The biggest deficiency Homo sapiens sapiens has is its mis-guided belief that knowledge and skill can be completely replaced with technology.

    Tactics on Trout by Roy Ovington is probably the best 'primers' a beginner can read.

    I personally like the old stuff better. You can still hunt with a bow and arrow, you can still fish with a fiberglass fly rod, and I'm just about positive that the fish have not evolved so much in the last 50 years that they are not still in the slow water near the faster water this time of year.

    Some things I have learned

    In rivers:
    cold water, fish slow water, or get deep into the pools.
    Never miss an opportunity to fish a seam.
    Fish like places where there is protection from predators and a ready food supply, without having to fight the current too much.

    In lakes, find and fish weedbeds and dropoffs, if the water is cold, slow down the retrieve.

    I still like the books prospecting for trout by Tom Rosenbauer, and the orvis fly fishing guide isn't bad either.

    One of the best books I've read about trout fishing is Trout Tactics, by Joe Humphries. It covers pretty much everything one should know about trout fishing in flowing water (up to the date of publishing). He emphasizes trout behavior as the most important think to learn in order to become a successful trout fisherman. Many other writers take inspiration from this book. It's a "must read" for any fly fisherman that is serious about his/her hobby.

    Tight lines,
    Alex
