In the rereleased edition of Trout of the World, fans of James Prosek’s unique painting talent will revel in the addition of 30 new fish paintings and a newly penned preface. First released in 2003, Trout of the World features original watercolors of trout from around the world, ranging from the Oxus trout of eastern Afghanistan to the small golden brown trout of British chalk streams. Each unique painting is coupled with a historical profile of the fish, as well as personal reflections from the author. Prosek savors the beauty of various fishing spots, along with the fate of the species, contemplating man’s role in the extinction of animals. Both sensitive and informative, Trout of the World is a must for the library of the recreational fisherman as ichthyologist.

but I think he will love the book
By Norma R Ingraham
I bought this book as a gift for my son who is an avid fisherman, and because I wanted a colored picture of a rainbow trout so I can paint one for him for his birthday. I haven't started my drawing yet and it will not be a copy of the picture in this book, but I think he will love the book.
The only thing I would wish is that there were more pictures of American trout.

Beautiful and informative book
Lifelong trout chasers are bound to still learn a lot. The pictures are simply amazing! Bought one for me and then my trout chasing partner.

Very good drawing pictures, can see for all details, has less-knowning information for foreign trouts
Jame Prosek is excellence artist who pay attention on every detail on living fishes. I can see all shades & hues that he painted on his work. Moreover information in this book is also precious, that come from all-part of trouts' range, even if from less-studied region like, Middle East or Central Asia. Not only interesting story from writer's traveling, but also includes fact from former scientific research that adds value from this book and I wish to see the 2nd volume. Whatever you are angler, student or interests, should have one on your shelf.
