Product Description

Synopsis

In his first book since the publication of "Salmon Fishing" in 1984, Hugh Falkus sets out a method of fly-casting for salmon which revolutionizes the old art of Speycasting. He has developed it over many years on the casting platform at his Cumbrian fishing school. The book is intended both for experienced salmon-fishers and for those new to the sport. It includes action photographs which illustrate how the cast is made, together with practical advice on the choice of tackle and fishing methods.

Format: Hardcover
To fly-fish you first need to learn how to cast the fly. Casting is a demanding activity to learn because of the various actions and timing. Hugh Falkus in this book uses hundreds of photographs to show the amateur and professional alike the positions required to obtain perfect casting ability. Over the years he taught hundreds of anglers his methods of casting and this book is now the text book for good Speycasters.

Great instruction and pleasant antidotes but some pictures difficult to see. Would recommend to other salmon fly fishing friends to enjoy.
