"A lucid and concise introduction."--Library Journal
Essential Fly Fishing presents the fundamentals of this great sport quickly and effectively. Proven teaching techniques and bright, helpful illustrations enable you 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 fishing techniques that really work; tie effective knots that have maximum strength; and begin the endlessly interesting process of tying your own flies. This easy-to-follow 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 superbly illustrated primer of the highest rank.
