From the front flap: "Sam Slaymaker believes that fly fishing is not more difficult to learn than other methods of fishing, contrary to popular opinion. Every step of the conversion from worm-digger to dry-fly artist is fully explained by this experienced fisherman and outdoor writer, and the line drawings by well-known outdoor artist, Ned Smith, make the author's instructions even clearer. In addition to giving pointers on how to think like a fish instead of a fisherman, the book covers the choosing of beginning equipment; the basic types of flies; the art of casting; playing and landing fish; and high and low, warm and salt-water fishing. This is a book for the bait caster or spin-fisherman who has shied away from the sport of fly fishing for fear it would be too difficult to master, as well as being a book for the non-fisherman who wants to learn to fish with flies. As for the occasional angler with only a few free days each season, he will find many tested tips to help him improve. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on the skills a fisherman is most interested in learning to further his enjoyment of this most challenging and pleasurable way of taking fish."
