About this title


The first and only book to reveal when, where, and how to catch the amazing false albacore.

The false albacore is a strong and lightning-fast member of the tuna family that has been discovered by the saltwater flyfishing world as one of the most challenging species to target. These fish are so fast and so strong for their weight that they are known to break fishermen's hearts along with their expensive fly rods. False Albacore covers the life history, biology, migratory patterns, and feeding habits of this great fish, as well as the tackle and techniques that are necessary to catch them. These fast-moving beauties migrate down the eastern coastline from Massachusetts to Florida each fall. The recognized mecca for pursuing them is North Carolina, where the greatest fly fishermen from around the world congregate to take part in the fall blitz. Tom Gilmore has spent years learning their tricks, as well as those of the guides that pursue them. He has uncovered hot spots ranging from Massachusetts to as yet undiscovered waters in Florida. False Albacore is the first and only book dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of this exciting species. 30 black & white photographs, 12 color photographs, 6 maps, index.
