    Seat Trout - Tips, Tricks and Tribulations by Steffan Jones is a new publication.
    This is what the author placed on a recent Facebook post.
    I have no affiliation to the author but he is held in high regard by many.
    Hope this is what you're looking for.


    "I believe the book offers something for everyone; from the beginner through to the most ardent. The book covers 244 pages over 25 chapters, ranging from tips and techniques on fly, spin and bait through to captivating chapters from contributors such as Moc Morgan on the evolution of Welsh sea trout flies and Martin Globalflyfisher Joergensen on saltwater fishing for sea trout. Further to this, I have called on friends and fellow sea trout addicts from around the world to contribute their favourite patterns. Included are John Graham, who not only contributes his patterns but also details their history and application, Stjani Ben from Iceland, Claudio Martin and Pepe Fly Borzi from Argentina, Tom O’Shea from Ireland and David Pilkington from England.
    No stone is left unturned in detailing how best to approach sea trout and how best to combat prevailing conditions. The book also discusses tackle, knots, casting considerations through to useful references on what time to start night fishing and length to weight formulas.
    I have now been sea trout guiding for 22 years. Over this time, I have witnessed all the common mistakes and all the common misconceived perceptions on sea trout. The book addresses these, enabling you to maximise your results and time on the water.
    How to order?
    The book costs £30 (GBP). Postage is £3.50 within the UK, £10.50 to mainland Europe. PLEASE NOTE that it is often possible to send multiple copies within the same package, should you wish to combine an order with a friend/s and save some money in the process. Each book weighs just over 1kg. Contact me for pricing on posting multiple copies or for posting outside of Europe."

    I have just finished reading this book and it's an excellent addition to the literature on sea trout fishing, it certainly stands alongside Falkus and Morgan/Harris in its usefulness to sea trout newcomers and experts alike. Steffan breaks new ground on sea trout behaviour, why night fishing is productive for sea trout but not for salmon, how to select fly size at different times of day and the most effective way to cover the water. I think it's exactly what the OP is looking for. It's getting towards (but not quite) the same level of importance related to sea trout as Bob Wyatt's "Trout Hunting" is to brown trout fishing.

There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    Another vote for Steffan's new book. It gives some genuinely original insights and offers some very logical approaches to sea trout fishing during the night and day. I think it has earned a place on the shelf of any sea trout angler and having read it, there are certainly some different approaches I will take this season when on the river. Falkus' work is an absolute classic and to my mind one of the finest angling books ever written - certainly my personal favourite. Any sea trout angler should read it. James Waltham's book is excellent with a strong focus on the flies to be used. The Morgan and Harris book is good but dare I say very weighty and runs the risk of throwing a bit too much information at the angler (I've put the tin hat on!). Steffan's book is very accessible and arms you well for some sound approaches to your nights and days on the river.

    I generally agree, Falkus is a classic if a little too focused on one river and the fly, Morgan & Harris cover more ground and give some space to other methods but it is a fairly weighty tome. Steffan's book sits nicely in the middle ground, is very contemporary and includes chapters from several big names in the sea trout world. Waltham's book is a personal favourite despite its emphasis on flies rather than methods.

    My advice for anyone new to sea trout is to read them all but use their intelligence and realise that not all methods relate to all rivers.

    I have not yet got my hands on Steffans book,hind sight reminds me of Steffan offering to guide me and some of the crew spending a weekend on the Teifi .Stupid me I knew it all ,had read Falkus and Morgan.
    Experience tells me that even a beardless local that has fished a location since childhood will get fish that no visitor can .
    I later had a session with him and it helped me get my head round the Teifi.
    I will be getting the book as a bedside read,afraid my days of rivers in the dark are over ,but hard earned knowledge shared is good.

    I used Falkus’ Sea Trout was a wonderful read. It took me several years to realise that fish didn’t read it as well.
