Publisher Comments:

Essential Fly Fishing - an all-color handbook - presents the fundamentals of this great sport quickly and effectively. Proven teaching techniques and bright, helpful color illustrations will enable new fly fishers to: find fish in streams, lakes, and salt water; select and assemble proper, balanced tackle; cast a fly line with authority - with rhythm, not strength; recognize and learn to simulate natural fish foods; learn techniques that really work; tie effective knots that have maximum strength; and begin the endlessly interesting process of tying your own flies.This book concisely explains fishing ethics, offers helpful safety precautions, and defines basic angling terms. The chapter on fly-rod fish describes the unique sport that many species - from trout to whitefish - offer fly fishers.Essential Fly Fishing is a crisp, helpful, superbly illustrated primer of the highest rank. (6 X 9, 160 pages, watercolors, color illustrations, b&w illustrations, diagrams)
