5.0 out of 5 stars Flycasting Skills for beginner and expert, 13 Mar 2013
This review is from: Flycasting Skills: for Beginner and Expert (Hardcover)
This excellent book by John Symonds and Philip Maher is a must have book for anyone wanting to know how casts work and importantly how to do the casts correctly. As the title says its very suitable for a beginner as explanations are given on how fly rods and lines work, how to hold the rod etc and not just the cast.

Throughout the books are clear diagrams and bullet points on all the key elements required to make a good cast.If you are beyond the absolute beginner stage then there are lots of more advanced casts and not just the basic roll and overhead casts. These include various Spey casts,Snap Casts, changes of direction, Belgian and a host of cats for virtually any fishing situation.

Both John and Philip are highly qualified in casting skills and are instructors and they bring across a wealth of information and tips to help anyone cast better.

The book is also an excellent aid for anyone training to be a fly fishing instructor and I would soon expect it to become required reading as casting mechanics and all the casts explained along with the various casting terms used and the main attributes of rods, fly lines and their characteristics etc. A useful glossary of terms is included which will help anyone not familiar with the various terms used.

All in all a great, refreshing book on fly casting no matter the reader`s current casting knowledge and skills
