Kaminsky brings his extensive knowledge of fly fishing (writer for Outdoor Life, Field & Stream and Sports Afield) to help you with all aspects of this challenging, but relaxing, sport. Read about equipment tips and find out all you need to know to purchase the rod and reel setup that's right for you.

If you want to fly fish, whether you are an occasional caster or a die hard fanatic, let FLY FISHING FOR DUMMIES be your only guide. As they say, "give a person a fish and feed him for a day; teach a person to fish and feed him for a lifetime."

Very informative if a little long winded. Its mainly for the American market but info can be used in most UK cases. Fairly amusing anecdotes to break it up too. Good value for money but not if you need specialist info on UK fly-fishing. PH
