"In a lifetime nearing seven decades, I have devoted the vast majority of my time probing the mysteries of legendary waters like the Yellowstone, Firehole, Madison, Snake, & the Henry's Fork. Numerous lesser known rivers & lakes have cooled my legs but not my enthusiasm as I roam this region with a constant spirit of anticipation & discovery. In a single lifetime, it would be impossible to fish all the water in & near the park, & a close relationship with even a handful is a significant accomplishment."

Rene Harrop records lessons learned from years fishing the world's toughest trout water. His home water, the Henry's Fork, is one of the most challenging spring creeks in the world, & over his lifetime fishing the Henry's Fork, he has developed legendary techniques & flies to meet the challenge. In Learning from the Water, Rene shares his wisdom on the importance of insect stages, the flies for a successful fly box, & how to plan & prepare for a trip to unfamiliar water. Chapters on midges, caddis, Flavs, Callibaetis, Tricos, PMDs, hoppers, beetles, aquatic wasps, & Baetis give solid inside information on each of these important insects as well as the patterns Rene uses to imitate them, patterns that inspire fly tiers the world over.
