Book Description
Hook up with the fly-fishing guide that’s a keeper
Some say successful fly fishing requires supreme athleticism, a surgeon’s delicate touch, and the serene spirit of a Zen master. But forget the hype: The updated edition of Fly Fishing for Dummies shows that all you need to get the hang of this enjoyable sport are the right tools, a disciplined technique, and a positive attitude. Whether you’re an old salt or dipping your toes in for the first time, you’ll find everything you need to learn, improve, and keep your casting sharp and fresh!
Longtime fishing writer Peter Kaminsky wades right in, taking you from choosing a rod and tying flies all the way through to staying dry with the right wardrobe and cooking up a delicious catch. You’ll also find out how you can get by with just 20 flies, a half dozen casts, and three knots. And, if you want to plunge deeper into the sport, he suggests some bucket-list destination rivers and streams to keep you agreeably hooked and learning for life―proving that the father of fishing writers Izaak Walton was right when, three centuries ago, he said: “No life is so pleasant and happy as that of a well-governed angler.”
  • Study your quarry―from rainbow trout to fashionable “glamour” fish
  • Get the best rod, reel, and gear for success―including the smartest tech
  • Know where to fish (land or sea) and how to read the water
  • Follow visual examples to sharpen your casting
Whatever your fly-fishing aims or skill level, the proven advice and 150+ illustrations in this friendly guide are your path to a lifetime of happy and productive trips: Don’t let it be the one that got away!
