4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for the beginning fly fisher. 16 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent reference for the beginning fly fisher. The discussions on equipment, fly selection and how two's on rigging flyfishing equipment, knots, reading streams and discussions on insect entomology are well written and explained in a manner which makes them easy to understand and remember by somone who is just getting into fly fishing. The secton on how to cast is also accurate and well written. However the best way to jump start your casting knowledge would be to enroll in a one day class at a local fly shop or coax an acquaintance who knnows how to show you on your lawn. All in all this book is a very good reference material and will give you everything you need to know to begin catching fish on the fly and help you determine whether you want to go further in the sport.

Thanks, Dave, for a good book for us fly fishing beginners. Pictures and illustrations are always good for beginners, and this book is full of them. I especially enjoyed the section on panfish and bass techniques.
