Posts: 4Interested in your thoughts of these two Schwiebert's books. They seem to be pretty thorough with over 1400page combined. Thinking of getting both of these. I have many of the well known books on mayflies and caddisflies, but these two seem interesting.

Not interested so much in fly recipes, more on different species of nymphs and their lives. So are they worth the money, or is there better books on the subject in your opinion?

Depends how much money you have, but the books are a masterpiece.

I posted my thoughts about them a couple months ago when they first came out here:

Unfortunately I haven't had time to give them a really thorough look yet, but so far so good.

I own both books and find them MORE than worth, the money invested in them! If,of course, you love to read in depth, as these books really get into the "hows and why and why nots" of the subject matter.
If you're really into nymphing, or wanting to get, really into it, these two books are sort of like "Nymphing bilbes" as far as I'm concerned.
Just my, two and a third cents worth, anyway!

Posts: 4Thank you for the replys. I'm new to the forum, been searching bugs from the site for a while. I think I'm going to visit here more often.

Money? Not alot, but I'm pretty sure that these two are woth it. Just wanted to make sure.

I've put them on order. Now I can't wait to get my hands on them.

They are on my Christmas list too.
