New book - Biology of Fly Fishing in collaboration with the WTT
Posted on December 06, 2017
The Wild Trout Trust is collaborating with Dr Axel Wessolowski to get his book translated into English and published in the UK by using ‘crowdfunding’.
His book is currently published in German and is called ‘Biology of Fly Fishing’.
It is an unusual book, written by a scientist who is also a journalist, based on scientific papers but designed for the fly fisher. It includes fascinating insights into salmonid’s sense of smell, taste, hearing, how they use their lateral line, how they see and many other topics.
Lots of illustrations and photos bring the descriptions to life. The insights provided by this book will add a new dimension to your fishing.
WTT staff members Dr Tim Jacklin and Professor Jon Grey will edit the translation. Axel is donating a portion of the book sales to the WTT for practical in river habitat improvement projects.
We encourage you to support his project and sign up for an early copy of the book and the option of some original drawings and photos from the book.
The crowdfunding page is here — check out the offers and opportunities to obtain a copy of the book and some lovely goodies !
