9780071427876: Getting Started in Fly Fishing

The fastest and easiest way to try your hand at fly fishing

Getting Started in Fly Fishing is dedicated to the simple but neglected truth that the best learning happens while doing. With leisure time more precious and limited than ever, author Tom Fuller gets readers started with only the information that's absolutely necessary for that first day on the stream. In a few quick strokes, Fuller introduces the contents of a pared-down start-up kit and identifies heavily promoted items of gear that are definitely not needed. With succinct, easy-to-follow instructions, he shows readers how to:

  • Start fishing after just an hour with this book
  • Make their first cast to a rising trout
  • Play and land their first fish
  • Fish with dry flies, wet flies, nymphs, and streamers
  • Cast to all kinds of fish in all waters, fresh and salt

From the Back Cover:

Do your wading in a brook, not a book

Can’t wait to hook into your first trout? You don’t have to! Unlike other beginner’s books, this streamlined guide to getting your feet wet in one of America’s fastest growing sports gives you just the information you need, as you need it, to get out on the stream and start flicking your fly rod―after just one hour with this book!

Master angler and writer Tom Fuller keeps the reading and preparation to a bare minimum as he provides must-have information that you can take straight to the bank―of the stream, that is. Carefully sequenced to be in sync with your learning curve, and supported by numerous and detailed photographs and drawings, Getting Started in Fly Fishing shows you how to:

  • Assemble a start-up kit packed with everything you need and not one item more
  • Learn essential knots and basic casting techniques fast
  • Plan your first day of fishing
  • Execute your first cast to a rising trout
  • Hook, play, and land your first fish

Looking for more advanced coaching? You’ll find plenty of that here too, including how to deal with common casting problems; read the water; choose the right fly for any situation; present flies to trout; and go beyond trout to salmon, bass, steelhead, and saltwater fish. But first you have to get started, and nothing puts your line in the water faster than Getting Started in Fly Fishing.

Tom Fuller is a lifelong angler whose articles have been widely published in fishing and outdoor magazines. He is the Northeast Regional columnist for Outdoor Life magazine and has published several books on fly fishing.
