Understanding Trout Behavior (John Goddard) pdf, epub, doc

John Goddard was born in London in 1923. John has been angling since he was a small boy, beginning on the river Wandle with a net and a jam jar before moving on to a rod at his grandfather's house on the Thames. John left school to be an apprentice engineer, but the war soon put a stop to this career and he joined the East Surreys, training as a parachutist before being demobbed in 1947. He then joined the family business, F. Goddard & Co. Ltd, who made garden furniture. It was in 1950 that John designed a fishing seat and began trading under the now internationally recognised name of Efgeeco. John developed many hugely successful ranges of tackle during the years Efgeeco traded, before selling the companyin 1984.

John has been an enthusiastic and skilled fly fisherman since the early 1950s, and his expertise has taken him on fishing trips all over the world, from Norway and Newfoundland to New Zealand, Mexico, South Africa and Kenya to name but a few. John is also an experienced big game and sea fisher, and he has represented England at international level big game fishing competitions. In the 1960s he travelled widely, undertaking surveys of big game and promoting the fishing opportunities of many exotic locations at the same time.
In 1967 John published Trout Fly Recognition, the result of meticulous study of natural flies, and much painstaking photography. John's interest in fly-tying has led to his being recognised as an expert entomologist, and over the years he has developed more than fifty original fly patterns, the most famous is the G&H Sedge (or Goddard Caddis), developed with his friend Cliff Henry.

Over the years John has contributed to many fishing journals and has had ten fishing books published.
