Editorial Reviews

Robert Snare
I have rarely used tandem flies either fly or spin casting since the buggers (literally) get tangled up. A lot. Usually there would need to be a very heavy weighted fly or sinker on the bottom and the second leader, usually is not adjustable and rarely long enough. But that's just me.

Meck's book shows the real skinny about the type of flies to use, how to attach them and techniques that work best. I'm not saying I don't catch fish with my own tandem flies it's just that his way is bett

Good how-to reference about how to use tandem rigs for fly fishing. Good for an intermediate fly fisherman who is looking to expand on basic techniques and master fishing multiple flies at one time.
John Kinsfather
If you like to fish tandem flies or are moving in that direction you will find this book to be very informative. It explores every conceivable method and rig for tandem fly fishing and is well illustrated. I am using it in conjunction with Dave Hughes book Trout Rigs & Methods and find them to be an unbeatable combo.
Martin Weaver
I like the easy approach Charlie makes to tandem fly fishing. I have used the information to help set up my flies. I am even venturing to setting up tandem streamers without fear. Good reference book and would recommend to beginner or experienced anglers.
