Essential Fly Fishing — an all-colour handbook — presents the fundamentals of this great sport quickly and effectively.

Proven teaching techniques and bright, helpful colour 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; recognise 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.
