Take Your Skills to the Next Level!
Fly fishing has seen tremendous growth in recent years. And many anglers are looking for more detailed and technical information to help them increase their catch for freshwater as well as saltwater species. This outdoor reference book in the Freshwater Angler series reveals detailed step-by-step how-to information beyond the beginner's level. It is a comprehensive, overall view of the sport and discusses all the crucial components - rods, reels, lines, flies, casting, reading water, landing fish - at an in-depth level. The book takes the reader beyond the basics of knots, how to sharpen a hook, construction of fly lines, beginning fly casting methods, where to locate and fish for various species. Instead, it shows why some knots are better than others, why you don't need every fly rod made, how a floating saltwater line might be right for your freshwater fishing, the pros and cons of direct drive versus anti'reverse reels, the advantages of reeling with your dominant hand, the right way to make a roll cast, considerations in fly choice for any fish, the best way to chum for saltwater fish, how to read any water, how to strike fish, how to fight big fish, proper fish-releasing tips, and much more.
