5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to get to know fly fishing, 11 April 2013
This review is from: Getting Started at Fly Fishing for Trout (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!
