This book is the perfect combination of art and practicality. Gorgeous Gyotaku prints highlight the artistry in the fly photography, making the book as beautiful as it is informative. The year-round fly-fishing opportunities in the flats, inshore, and off-shore waters of the Southeast and Gulf Coast are world-class. As are the numerous game fish you will encounter: bonefish, tarpon, permit, pompano, sailfish and sharks, to name just a few. That s a lot of water types and a lot of fish species, so where do you start? After years of research, Peluso has compiled the go-to flies from guides, captains, fly shop owners, local club members, avid anglers...in short, the experts in Southeast and Gulf Coast waters. The flies in this book are proven fish-catchers from the people whose jobs depend on your successful Southeast fishing adventure! Hundreds of patterns are shared as well as techniques and tips for using them that will give you the upper hand on these wily and wary opponents.

"Angelo Peluso is a fly-fisherman and fly-tier aficianado, I know the time, effort and love that went into the completion of "Saltwater Flies of the Southeast & Gulf Coast," This book is not only very informative but a must-have addition to the library of all fly-fishermen. Great Job!" -- Captain Lenny Moffo "Back Cover"

This is a highly comprehensive work and any fly-fisher or fly-tier worth their salt will surely want to have a copy." -- Jon Cave "Back Cover"
