Trout Hunter : The Way of an Angler

Rene' Harrop

Rene' Harrop


Rene Harrop’s interest in fishing started in 1954 when he was nine years old. His father started taking him to the many fine rivers in the Yellowstone region where they explored and fished together. Rene fishes almost every day sometimes just for a few hours but always manages to fish two to three full days each week. 


In 1968 Rene started fly tying commercially on a part-time basis and within three years built it into a full-time business the House of Harrop.


He was also a founding partner in the Trout Hunter a lodge and fly shop located in Island Park, Idaho, which opened in 1998.


Over the years he has been a professional fly tier, artist, river guide, fly fishing consultant and angling writer.


Rene has been involved in many conservation endeavors and was a founding president of the Upper Snake River Fly Fishers (1972) and a founding member of the Henry’s Fork Foundation (1984).


Rene’s first book Trout Hunter was publishing in 2004 by Pruett Publishing and his most recent book Learning from the Water was published in 2010 by Stackpole Publishing.

He also produced many DVDs including Life Cycle of the Mayfly, Life Cycle of the Caddisfly, Tying with Turkey and Favorite Flies.


Rene’s home water is the Henry’s Fork and his other favorites the Madison, Fire Hole, Yellowstone, Gallatin and the South Fork of the Snake are all within a three hour drive.

A Modern Dry Fly Code

Vincent Marinaro

A self taught student in the science of trout behavior and insect life, his campus and laboratory was his home water of the Letort River in Pennsylvania. His studies resulted in his first book, A Modern Dry Fly Code, which far sophisticated at the time, failed commercially when first published in 1950. However, it ‘s reissue, 20 years later, influenced Swisher and Richards in the development of the “no hackle” flies and the “comparaduns” of Caucci and Nastasi, made it a classic resource. His second book, In the Ring of The Rise , 1976, provided a masterful analysis of the various rise forms associated with feeding trout and the splendid illustrations and superb photography for anglers to experience stream success.
