Book: 100 Best Flies for Montana Trout

100 Best Trout Flies for Montana Trout ($25; by Tom R. Pero and Ted Fauceglia, is a fascinating and beautiful little book with the best fly photographs I've ever seen. The selection of patterns includes dry flies, nymphs, streamers, midges, terrestrials, and emergers. Fauceglia’s photographs are tack sharp, blown up to 10 times their original size, and set against a light blue background that allows the flies materials and pattern parts to stand out clearly. Though the selection is fairly complete, more than two midge patterns (as midges are a super hatch in Montana) should have been included. The book also neglects to mention the patterns' originators, though it does recognize which fly supplier tied the flies. Still it is a great little book and is available at fly shops, bookstores, and the publisher’s website.
