Overview

The fastest and easiest way to try your hand at fly fishing

Getting Started in Fly Fishing is dedicated to the simple but neglected truth that the best learning happens while doing. With leisure time more precious and limited than ever, author Tom Fuller gets readers started with only the information that's absolutely necessary for that first day on the stream. In a few quick strokes, Fuller introduces the contents of a pared-down start-up kit and identifies heavily promoted items of gear that are definitely not needed. With succinct, easy-to-follow instructions, he shows readers how to:

  • Start fishing after just an hour with this book
  • Make their first cast to a rising trout
  • Play and land their first fish
  • Fish with dry flies, wet flies, nymphs, and streamers
  • Cast to all kinds of fish in all waters, fresh and salt
