About this title


Tom Wendelburg lives to fish. A prolific outdoor writer and photographer, a respected and innovative flytier, a keen observer of fish habitat and behavior, a versatile and passionate fisherman—Wendelburg is all of these. He is one of the most-published writers on fishing, with bylines in such magazines as Fly Fisherman, but this is his first book.
    Catching Big Fish on Light Fly Tackle is a book to be savored and re-read, for it distills decades of fly-fishing knowledge. It includes Wendelburg's philosophy of using light tackle, his insights on surface and underwater tactics, discussions of his favorite fish (trout, bass, bluegills, salmon, and steelhead) and of his favorite flies, including much-admired fly patterns that he developed (Wendelburg’s Hare's Ear Scud and his no-hackle hairwing dry fly). Wendelburg is a consummate fisherman and a first-rate teacher, and his enthusiasm is infectious.

From the Back Cover:

"Tom Wendelburg is one of a rare breed that is not only an excellent writer but also a great fisherman. When it comes to short rods and light tackle, he's the best I've ever seen. Most fly-fishing books I've read in recent years simply restate concepts developed a long time ago, with very few fresh ideas or new techniques. Catching Big Fish on Light Fly Tackle, by contrast, offers both and is jam-packed with Wendelburg's unique expertise."--Doug Swisher, coauthor of Fly Fishing Strategy and Selective Trout
