Review:

In the wise words of Dame Juliana Berners, spoken five centuries ago yet just as immediate now, "there is more to fishing than catching fish." So begins The Complete Book of Fly Fishing, a combination primer-encyclopedia that is indeed a fairly complete book--and without sacrificing depth for breadth. Early chapters include the basics, such as history, equipment, and technique. McNally explains the differences between dry flies, nymphs, and wet flies, and how to approach these very different forms of fly-fishing. Insect hatches, stream tactics, and more advanced strategies are also detailed with illustrations and color photographs. Final chapters cover less traditional quarry like bass, pike, and saltwater species.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Complete Book of Fly Fishing:

". . .although I am usually skeptical of 'everything books,' the McNally volume actually seems to be one of the best-thought-out basic texts I've seen for a while­­--for a reasonable price at that­­--covering everything from trout to pike to sailfish."­­--Fly Rod & Reel

"To say any single book about a subject so diverse as fly fishing is 'complete' is tall talk, but this one delivers."­­--Flyfisher

"McNally's writing is disciplined, but smooth. The reader doesn't even realize that he or she is being tutored as well as entertained."­­--New York Newsday
