ESSENTIAL FLY FISHING                                                               (Lyons)

Tom Meade

 

 

After 60,000 paperbacks sold, a new design for a new generation

 

 

This is a clearly written and beautifully illustrated primer for the new and intermediate fly fisher, containing everything you need to know in an easy-to-use format.  Longtime outdoors journalist Tom Meade covers casting techniques, equipment selection, fly tying, wading, finding fish, and much more.  The full-color illustrations of artist Bob White and comprehensive, accessible text will be thoroughly useful for many years and help guide you to ever higher skill levels and success.  

 

Tom Meade is the former editor at Fly Fisherman and Fishing & Hunting News, and is the outdoor sports columnist for the Providence Journal-Bulletin.

Synopsis:

Full-color guide filled with proven techniques aimed at the beginner.

Synopsis:

"A lucid and concise introduction."--Library Journal

Synopsis:

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.
