'Joan Wulff's New Fly-Casting Techniques is a bible for fly fishers around the world who wish to perfect the art of fly casting and understand the techniques and mechanics so as to master them. With clear instruction aided by very useful diagrams, this is definitely a book all fly anglers should have on their shelves.' Paul Sharman, Fish & Fly
'If I had to sum up the book in a word, it would be ‘clarity’. You could turn the study of casting into a masterclass in applied physics if you wanted to, but Wulff has the great teacher’s knack of distilling complexity into everyman English, and the combination of crisp text and illustrations make this a very absorbable read. As befits a near-lifelong mastery of her subject, the author digs deep yet lucidly into the components of sound casting technique, to the point where it’s not difficult to imagine the book benefitting not just beginners but also veteran anglers set in their casting ways, whose own technique might benefit from a refresh. This isn’t the only good book on casting, but I doubt anyone has made proficiency in the subject seem as accessible as Joan Wulff. Highly recommended.' Jeffrey Prest, Trout Fisherman
