"Once the fly fisherman procures the right fly at the right time, he must also be able to present it properly - that is, in the same way a natural insect would act in a natural environment. Apparently, this is not so easy to accomplish as we once assumed." Swisher and Richards show the reader how. Chapters include; casting theory and technique; practical applications of advanced casting technique; fishing the water - no surface feeding apparent; fishing the rise; mimicking and masking hatches - compound hatches; complex hatches; stillborne duns; new fish of the Midwest - steelhead, Pacific and Atlantic salmon; lake fly fishing; saltwater fly fishing; new developments in tyng technique and materials; fly rods; modern equipment; modern regulations for today's trout streams; stream courtesy. A successor to "Selective Trout" and certain to have a great impact on the world of fly fishing. Bookseller Inventory # 24892
