About this title

Synopsis:

The perfect balance for those searching for a bit of peace and quiet and an outdoor activity: fly fishing combines connecting with nature, the defining of personal aesthetics, and physical activity.

The Flyfisher shows the most beautiful fishing spots, self-tied flies, and the right equipment for this increasingly popular lark of leisure. Equal parts outdoor meditation and escapism, fly fishing appeals to a diverse audience. The dedicated focus on the task at hand makes daily life fade away and the fly fisher is free to connect with the soothing sounds of the water while awaiting a catch. From rod to reel to weighted line, the art of fly fishing is rife in details. Filled with photos of anglers and their habitats, the craftsmanship of tying flies, and expert discussions on the right gear to wear to wade into a favorite river, The Flyfisher is the first comprehensive discussion of this multifaceted sport. It is as much about the triumphant catch as the craft of building bait paired with the art of appreciating the overall experience as well as the method.

Review:

"Like any good coffee-table book, The Fly Fisher is largely composed of images. In the case of this particular volume, the images are truly stunning. Numerous photographs, many of them full-page and double-spread, show incredible landscapes, stop-action fly casts, and images of jewel-like fishing gear. Beautiful watercolor renderings of fish, along with illustrations of flies and casting demonstrations, help to provide information in a gorgeous and accessible way. Kudos should be given to the editors and publisher for presenting a view of fly fishing that breaks the mold of tweedy middle-aged practitioners fishing for trout." --
