It’s never too early or too late to learn one of the oldest, most beloved outdoor sports: fly-fishing. Introducing your complete, useful crash course: “Fly-Fishing for Trout: The How-To Guide” – a Vook that features step-by-step, expert fishing instruction in an easy-to-understand format. Download it now and get started!

In eight easy-to-follow chapters, you’ll learn everything you need to know to about fly-fishing, from bait and tackle to catch and release. First you’ll learn all about the equipment you’ll need, how to cast, and what species of trout you’re likely to encounter on your fishing adventures. Next you’ll learn how to read the water, how to effectively bait a fish, and how to work the fly. Finally, you’ll learn how to weigh two very important options once you’ve hooked a trout: catch or release? Tips and videos throughout provide added dimension and resources to make the process even clearer.

1.0 out of 5 stars I would avoid this book.... 6 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't really enjoy reading this title, and I felt that it lacked alot of substance. There are other books on the market that provide greater insight into fly fishing techniques.

For example, There is a chapter in the book that is called 'Working The Fly'. This covers 4 areas of fly fishing namely dry flies, wet flies, nymphs and streamers.

To cover these topics there is a short paragraph for each. To put this in context, there are full books dedicated to each technique, and writing a few paragraphs about the general approach doesn't really cut it, in my opinion.

Even the preceding chapter on fly types is pretty thin on the ground. My feeling is that there is inadequate description of the fly design and where and when to use such flies etc.

Overall, the book reads like a school essay and lacks key information that I feel would be essential for a text on fly fishing techniques.

I would recommend saving your cash and buying another book. I wish that I hadn't purchased this. Even at a low price, it is not worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trout fly fishing 8 Feb. 2013

Very simple to understand and clear instructions for the first time angler or recently convert, taken from an American fisherman's knowledge but trout have a universal life style no matter where they are in the world, a book to have in your pocket when trout fishing

2.0 out of 5 stars You need to know how to fish to learn how to fish 18 Jun. 2011
By Raven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wonder if I'm just easily confused.

Knowing nothing about Fly-Fishing, but eager to learn, I thought this looked like the perfect title to get me started.

After a nice little introduction about the history of Fly-Fishing, the author begins discussing 'Fly-Fishing for Trout: the Video Guide'. Neither the title nor the description of this book mentions any Videos which makes me wonder, what's going on here. But if we ignore this, the rest of the book is okay.

As a complete novice to the sport, I found that the author made several assumptions and used words and phrases that, perhaps, someone who is already familiar with fishing would understand. Perhaps some illustrations (this book has none) would help clear up the confusion. A lot of times (for example the discussion on fly rod selection) the author tells us what to take into consideration, but fails to give us concrete examples.

The formatting for the kindle is great: interactive table of contents plus easy to navigate with the 5-way controller.

After reading this short booklet, I know a bit about Fly-Fishing. But I don't feel I know enough to go into a sports shop to buy the equipment, level on actually fish for trout.
