The Fishing Gene Blog has been running for in excess of three years. With 80 posts to date and and average viewership in excess of 1000 a month, a mess of useful, thought provoking and sometimes humorous anecdotes related to the authors abiding passion. Fly-fishing.

This book is a collection of twelve of the most popular posts over the years. Those stories or instructions which have proven to be most read by the public at large and now made available in a more readable and convenient format.

Do you ever wonder why you can't cast your new hi-tec rod as well as the older one that you loved so much? Ever pondered why it can be so tricky to fool a cold blooded creature with a brain the size of a pea? And of course what flies do guides use when hackles are hard to come by and expensive?

This book is filled with humorous and thought provoking anecdotes on all aspects of the sport.

The author's passion has been fishing since exiting the womb, it’s not his fault, he has "The Fishing Gene" in his DNA and here he unselfishly shares some of the experience and experiences of a lifetime of fishing.

Meet the Author

I am an outdoorsman, not a computer boffin, or at least that was the picture when I started this a few years back. Since then I have become caught up with the advantages of electronic media. Steep learning curves continue, frustrations abound but out of that crucible have I think come some really worthwhile publications. How to Make your own fly fishing lanyard was the first and remains the most popular of all the titles. Plus it's free. Then "Who Packed your Parachute" an investigation into better ways to tie parachute flies followed.Still an experiment and free to anyone. Recently my book "Learn to Fly-cast in a Weekend" previously published in hard cover was converted to electronic format making it available to a far wider audience. It has received great reviews and then came the comprehensive and highly innovative "Essential Fly Tying Skills" book, which was previously only available on CD due to the file sizes has been made available for instant download. Now the genre has expanded further with "Guide Flies", with the same format of graphics, text and video clip links. I am still passionate about the outdoors, fly fishing and writing. I hope that you will enjoy the books and find them useful. I further hope that as I learn more there will be more titles with ever better content. Regards Tim

I loved this....it is warm and funny. Tim's anecdotes are amusing and informative, beautifully written little gemstones containing many lessons from years of experience and true passion. You learn and smile at the same time, the sign of a great teacher. Cheryl Heyns.
