5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and thought provoking, 20 Oct 2013
This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
Fly fishing, and especially chalk stream fly fishing, is steeped in history, but often bogged down by tradition. This book analyses and questions the traditions, and encourages readers to think for themselves.Anyone who fishes beyond the occasional mayfly day will find this book an inspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read and Learn, 3 Jan 2014

This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
This book was billed as a major work on modern fly fishing. It certainly is a major work, all 272 pages of it, and well worth a read by anyone open to trying different things and prepared to think for themselves. The writer has a somewhat irritating style but do not let this detract from the messages that the book contains. In terms of the content there is very little that is new in this book, it merely takes many factors that have been known for many years and offers some salient thoughts as well as some very useful analysis. If you can take from this book things that improve your fishing then the book will have succeeded. Throw away the dust jacket and study the text, it will reward you if you are receptive. It must be said that this book is essentially about chalk streams, though most principles are common to all rivers. Perhaps the author should have ventured further out of his box, but this should not detract from a valuable and thought provoking work.

This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
A beautifully produced book with a refreshingly different approach. I tied the flies and caught fish with them.
The flies aren't all it's about though. Roll on next season!

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant book, 20 Nov 2013
This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
This is something special in flyfishing literature - it's truly different It has authority and imagination and genuinely pushes the boundaries of thinking. Above all, it's entertaining. On page after page I found myself saying 'why didn't I think of that?' Congratulations to Peter Hayes on a brilliant piece of work

5.0 out of 5 stars This one will make you think, 31 Oct 2013
This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
There are many, many books on fly-fishing. But this one is different. It challenges long held beliefs and traditions and gives you, the reader, much to ponder with plenty of new theories. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile book written from interesting angles...., 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
It was a book well researched and very well written.
I did not know the author previous to buying the book, but the title made it sound of interest.... It did not disappoint it was a beautifully printed book on fine stock and arrived with the signature of the author Peter Hayes.
I have enjoyed reading the book and being a fly-fisherman for nearly 50 years it still made some interesting points from
many angles of the sport.

A different approach to many of the situations that puzzle the average fly fisherman with lots of references to add weight to the various theories.

This review is from: Fly Fishing Outside the Box: Emerging Heresies (Hardcover)
Provocative contemporary book. Not all will agree with some of his theories but it is healthy to challenge traditional techniques and views.
