by Ralph Cutter?

I forget where the thread is but a few people were talking about how they have fished for some time and want to learn more about insects, etc. I read this book a while ago and found it valuable. It isn't too scientifically deep to lose the average Joe but at the same time it is plenty instructive and informative.

I know there are some serious bug guys here and their knowledge is well beyond the book but I thought it was well done for it's audience.

any thoughts?

I don't have Ralph's book, but have read all of the articles he wrote which are (or were) on his website. My impression of those articles is that he has spent considerable time studying the behavior of aquatic insects, and that he does a good job of conveying that pertinent and very interesting information to the flyfishing reader.
Best regards,
Roger Rohrbeck
