I have been a fly fisherman for 57 years now and have read many good books on the sport and this is one of the best. Peter Lapsley is a very experienced fly fisherman and writer and therefore this book is so easy to read. Because Peter is not only an experienced fly fisherman, but also a qualified casting instructor, the book contains so much useful information, instruction and advice even for the more experienced angler. Those new to fly fishing rivers will definately benefit from reading this book. Having only been first published in 2003 it is well up to date with modern techniques and tackle. I recommend you also buy Peter Lapsley's new book "Pocket guide to Matching the Hatch" which is excellent and a must for new and more experienced fly fishers.(this will be reviewed separately)
