9781586670702: Fish On!: A Guide to Playing and Landing Big Fish on a Fly

Many anglers successfully hook fish only to lose them after the hook pulls free or the line breaks. The fisherman's first concern is often placing the bait or fly where the fish are feeding, with little thought as to how to land a fish in the happy event that "the big one" is hooked. Fish On! outlines the general rules for playing fish, and investigates those variables, often overlooked, that have a direct impact upon your ability to play fish. Such variables include choice of equipment, the conditions under which you fish, and the particular species of fish you hope to catch. Although the book is directed at those who fish with a fly rod, spin fishermen and plug casters will find the same basic fish-playing principles apply.

About the Author:

Floyd N. Franke joined the staff of the Joan and Lee Wulff School of Fly Fishing in 1989. He lives in Roscoe, New York.

Review:

The fish was a head-shaker, one of those powerful Roaring Fork rainbow trout, an neither of us was winning the fight.It is an extraordinary read, absolutely recommended for anyone who ever lost blew) a big fish or took too long to bring one in. (Ed Dentry Rocky Mountain News)

The book is chock full of good information for fly fisherman for both fresh and saltwater fishing. (Roger Aziz Eagle Tribune, Lawrence, Ma)

Interesting reading for the adventure angler, with valuable tips to prevent the loss of a fish of a lifetime. (Kentucky Herald Leader)

All of the methods are sound and will benefit any angler. Franke does a great job on an overlooked topic. It's a great addition to a fishing library. (Fly Fisherman)

This comprehensive, well-written book will be of great value to any angler who fishes with spinning, baitcasting or fly tackle. Franke's techniques go far beyond the basic trio fo standard fish-fighting advice. (Pete Barrett Fisherman)

Floyd Frank, a staff member of the famed Joan and Lee Wulff School of Fly Fishing since 1989 and an angler since long before that, claims to know things about playing a fish taht most fishermen don't. He just might at that. (Clolumbus Dispatch)
