    The visual elements of color photos of fishermen, flies, and fishes, and detailed illustrations of fly-fishing techniques discussed in many of the 34 chapters by expert fly fishermen make this fishing manual particularly informative as well as attractive. The four-page detailed Index in smaller print is another reason for the manual’s particular relevance and usefulness for fishermen. The contents and writing evidence that the editor and the several authors know their prospective readers. With their identification with them, editor and authors know the challenges and questions on fly fishermen’s minds, and also understand the allure and satisfactions of this sport. In “How Trout Feed,” the editor in one of his articles advises readers, “If water temperatures rise above seventy degrees F. in summer, both insect hatches and trout feeding dwindle.” Lou Tabory tells “How to Read a Beach” in salt-water fly fishing for bluefish. The first eleven articles are on the general subjects of casting and flies. Subsequent sections deal with fishing for trout, steelhead (salmon), and bass, with a closing section on salt-water fishing.

    This a great book to help those beginning to explore fly fishing as well as those who have overcome the urge to give it up when they encounter the frustration of not being able to cast perfectly on the first try and have been fly fishing for years. Not sure how many copies of this book that I have purchased in the past but at least six. I have given them to several people who were like all of us at one time, just beginning fly fishing. Fly fishing is like most other worthwhile endeavors that require some effort on the part of the participant. This book gives the basics in an easy to understand language for the beginner as well as a great resource for those like me who need revisit “now just how is that done” again and again.
