Overview

  • Covers gear and tackle, fly selection, casting, setting the hook, playing and releasing the fish, float fishing
  • Insight into a wealth of fishing experience from one of the most well-known fly fishers in the sport today
  • Illustrations by Dave Hall and photos by John Gierach

Through his accounts on the water, author A. K. Best shares his lifetime of fly-fishing experience. "I have always thought that going fly fishing simply meant that you drove to the stream, strung up your rod, tied on a fly, looked for a rising trout, and then cast to it until you caught it. It does work out that way sometimes and it's a lot of fun. But other times, it gets a little more complicated and that's even more fun." It's these complications that A. K. deals with, untangles, and explains in his first book devoted to fishing.
