Synopsis: Twenty years ago, FLY FISHING IN SALT WATER pioneered this new territory for fly fishers. Now, with over forty thousand copies sold, this comprehensive volume on saltwater fly fishing is available as a handy and inexpensive paperback. In clear, practical terms and helpful photographs and line drawings, master fly fisherman Lefty Kreh discusses:

· all the major saltwater species - bonefish, tarpon, striped bass, bluefish, salmon, permit, snook, sharks, cobia, tuna, billfish
· how to fish from boats
· how to wade the flats
· how to select and use the rods, reels, lines, leaders in a variety of situations
· the flies in full color

Lefty provides superb advice about how to make the long casts necessary for fishing the fly in salt water, how to "tease" sailfish and other large fish to within fly-casting range, how to chum, and how to tie the necessary knots for saltwater fishing. New chapters include Knots and Leaders, Flies, Tackle, Inshore Fly Fishing, and Boats. FLY FISHING IN SALT WATER is based on firsthand experience by an acknowledged master. It is the saltwater fly fisher's bible.

Review: For the subspecies of saltwater angler who insists on doing his fishing with flies, Kreh is the guru and this is the holy book. Now in its third revised edition, Fly Fishing in Salt Water first surfaced in the late '60s when the idea of fishing the seas with a fly for bluefish, stripers, bonito, and bigger game like tarpon and tuna was not only novel, it was sneered at. Fly-fishing in saltwater is still a relatively new frontier, but time has proven Kreh a visionary and the virtual father of the sport, and this how-to remains an essential part of a saltwater fly-angler's tackle.

Why fish salt water with a fly? Because, says Kreh, it combines the best physical and cerebral aspects of fishing and hunting, with the added complication that "no stocked fish roam the seas." Unlike trout fishing ("Trout fishing writers have always tended to complicate a rather simple sport," carps Kreh), where the angler must understand from the start that trout in a pool are relatively stationary creatures that exist only on the food available in that pool, saltwater species are fish in transit, constantly on the move, often in schools, and they gulp down anything they run into. Kreh's bible begins by engraving that difference in stone. Then it patiently introduces you to the sport's basics step by step: the necessary tackle and how to care for it; technique; fly patterns; fish behavior; the long cast; understanding tides and where fish are likely located; and specifics of deepwater fishing, inshore fishing, and fishing at sea from boats.

"The sea has always been a fascination to me, and the creatures in it offer the greatest challenge a fly rodder will ever know," writes Kreh. His unparalleled infectious enthusiasm--just look at the cover photo of the author: a happy man if ever there was one--and expertise make that challenge as reachable as it is alluring. --Jeff Silverman
