Great read -
By: chasingtrout from Durango CO
Great book, I just got it a few days ago, and have already found information that was useful on the river. Tom is a great teacher and author.
Very good glimpse at the habits of a trout. The pictures help a great deal and you can really visualize what the author is talking about. Saw improvement in my game after only a few chapters!
Very informative read -

A great read for people who are both learning to fly fish and also for the experienced angler. The graphics of the river are clear and concise and give a precise indication of where the trout would lie.

I always enjoy to read the books of Tom Rosenbauer. This one is on par with Gary Lafontaine´s "Caddies Flies". It took me a year to read it fully and I always come back to it when I do not catch anything, which is also part of the game.

The Orvis Guide to Reading Trout Streams explains one of the most important skills in trout fishing – being able to read the water and understand where trout lie. This is an essential skill for all fly anglers.
Must read for novice fishermen -

I now look at trout streams in a totally new way. "Reading Trout Streams" is excellant. Well written and easy to understand with outstanding graphics. I think every fisherman will learn something new of benefit to finding fish. A must read for every novice fisherman.
Great book! -
The information is too notch. Wish the pictures were in color to make it easier to see what Tom is explaining but overall excellent read. Got some trout already by read the river with the first time I went out after reading this!

Straightforward writing; very clear and easy to understand illustrations. The author makes a pretty dry subject very interesting, good insights from a real trout addict !!
Great Book -
I am about halfway through the book and can't wait to get out on a stream.
What a great book -
By: Novoselac from Newcastle, Australia
This book deserves special mention – it’s a treat. At a juicy 162 pages, it’s packed with diagrams and pictures and goes into great depth. Enough depth to help the reader figure out why in certain situations, for example, fish won’t be found on the outside of a bend, despite the presence of a promising looking undercut bank. Experienced fly fishermen like Rosenbauer know that trout prefer to lie in water that runs about one-quarter to one-half foot per second and feed in water that runs about two feet per second. Accordingly, in one situation presented in the book, the water below the undercut is moving too fast. Great read. I wish I was even a tenth as talented and practiced as Rosenbauer.
