It's a decent read as an introductory guide, but not as informative as I had hoped. The ideal audience for this book are anglers who haven't fished small streams, as it's more about what to expect that anything else (if you've been on small streams, you've already realized you need to cast backhand, roll cast, etc). Some good discussion of fly selection and while it doesn't come up much these days, good arguments about catch-and-release and general conservation.
