Overview

A classic reissued with new and updated information, and, for the first time, full-color photos! Co-author Paul N. Fling states confidently that when newcomers experience the joys of flyfishing, they’ll “rush headlong” to learn everything about the sport. When they do, there’s no better place to go for information than this primer. Fling and photographer Donald L. Puterbaugh know how to convey their knowledge to beginners, and cover every flyfishing basic: the study of insects that trout feed on, fly-casting, fly-tying, an analysis of fresh water habitats, fishing techniques, and flyfishing history and lore. This perennial guide now includes an expanded discussion of equipment and materials, as well as stunning hand-colored illustrations and photos that make the book a pleasure to look through…and learn from.
