Common Nymphs of Eastern North America: A Primer for Flyfishers and Flytiers By Caleb J. Tzilkowski and Jay R. Stauffer Jr.

Common Nymphs of Eastern North America introduces something truly ground-breaking to the flyfishing literature. With state-of-the-art microscopy and their years of scientific and practical experience, Tzilkowski and Stauffer provide flyfishing enthusiasts an innovative, close-up look at identifying and imitating nymphs that have been historically underrepresented in the literature. Not only will anglers benefit from this book, it provides students, stream conservationists, and budding scientists foundational knowledge necessary for monitoring the “health” of stream ecosystems.

Not only are both authors superbly qualified as fly tiers and fly fishermen, they are also scientists. Dr. Tzilkowski is an Aquatic Ecologist with the National Park Service, and at one time, a flyfishing guide who has collected, identified, and written extensively about stream ecology and the organisms that are the subject of the book. Dr. Stauffer is a Distinguished Professor of Ichthyology at the Pennsylvania State University and has written or co-written several books and more than 180 scientific publications. Dr. Stauffer has been studying stream and lake ecosystems around the world for nearly 40 years. Their new book will bridge the gap between science and flyfishing by offering a wealth of useful and educational information in a colorful, user-friendly format.

With state-of-the-art microscopy and their years of scientific and practical experience, Tzilkowski and Stauffer provide readers an innovative close-up look at identifying and imitating nymphs that have been historically underrepresented in the flyfishing and fly-tying literature.

Common Nymphs of Eastern North America is published by The Pennsylvania State University Press. It has 128 spiral-bound coated pages pages and 77 color illustrations. For more information visit http://www.psupress.org/books/titles/978-0-271-20450-5.html
