Organized around the seasons, BugWater follows the bugs and the trout through their life cycles from spring through winter. Thomason's stunningly striking photos and fascinating narratives show off the bugs up close, in amazing detail. With the author's insights as both a scientist and fly fisher and his expertise as a photographer, this book delivers solid content all fly fishers can learn from.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING: "Thomasons superb images not only provide up-close examples for fly tiers to follow but also capture the beauty of these amazing insects in a way never done before. Part reference work, part celebration, BugWater is a special book." -Jay Nichols
