4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to fly fishing 22 May 2013
Format:Paperback
As a professional fly fisherman and instructor,I consider this book fill a gap in the market for introducing people to fly fishing. Well written and easy to read, Allan is obviously someone sharing his wealth of experience. I can recommend this to anyone who has recently taken up the sport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to get to know fly fishing 11 April 2013
Format:Paperback
Allan Sefton's book is entertaining and pragmatic, and stuffed with technical facts which are presented simply. The tone of the book is both passionate (for the sport) and respectful (of the quarry). It is reassuringly detailed on the basic equipment needed and the techniques for assembling it. There is a great section on knots, for example. Throughout, the specialised terminology of the sport is used - but the author takes care to explain each term simply and straightforwardly so the reader quickly becomes familiar with it. Once the basic equipment (or "tackle") has been covered, the book goes on to describe the essential art of casting, followed by a long and immensely interesting section on tactics for catching trout " on the fly". It is a fine, no-nonsense introduction to this sport, including practical guidance on sources of equipment, training and fishing spots - encouraging, but also making clear what is required of the person wanting to become a fly-fisher. Highly recommended by this reviewer, who came to fly-fishing in her 30s and never lost the passion!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wish I had bought this book before starting, as I was doing just about everything WRONG. Its easy to read and understand and is also a good reference book for the future.
certainly a great book for beginners and possibly for people fairly new to the sport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I always wanted 13 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific book - I only wish it had been around many years ago when I first started to learn about fly fishing. Had it been, I think I would have been a far better and more knowledgeable fisherman than I am today. I bought the book because I will soon need to introduce a grandson to fly fishing and I don't want to pass onto him my bad habits. This book is clear, well-written and covers just about everything one could wish to know in becoming successful at this sport. I hope Allan Sefton will write a follow-up book on boat fishing in the Midlands reservoirs, about which he is obviously very knowledgeable.

This book provides enough information to get started as well as serving as a reminder for those who don't fish regularly enough for things to come 'naturally'. Looking forward to the book on River Trout Fishing!
