Thread: Stonefly books

  1. #1

    Default Stonefly books

    Being somewhat obsessive/compulsive, I've cross-referenced some of the hatch charts that I have to each other, comparing information. Then, I marked the different species in my copy of Hatches II.

    BUT, Hatches II only speaks to mayflies. I would like some advice on finding a pretty comprehensive book on stoneflies.

    Thanx.

    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    Funny you should bring that up. I just got a book on stones from the library yesterday. It's "Stoneflies for the Angler" by Eric Leiser and Robert H Boyle. Stackpole Books is the publisher.
    It's pretty comprehensive for a layman. Lots of info about the different species.

    'Stonefies for the angler' that Yat just mentioned is the first one that comes to mind, but don't forget the classic entomology read from Hefele and Hughes called 'Western Hatches'.
    Both of these should be on your shelf for future referrence.

    Thanx, guys.

    I'm trying to learn the looks of flies/bugs in the areas where I fish. Not much more to do during the "Blizzard of the Century" (other than shovel the heck outta some white stuff).
