Bergman was the most important angling write of his day, as noted by the New York Times: "The only true American angling classic still read widely is Ray Bergman's Trout. It remains the best all-around basic text, managing to cover fundamentals of theory and practice in a smooth and relaxed way. Trout remains our Old Testament, the first and only book many anglers look to for guidance." Bruns B134.
