Description

* Selecting the rod, reel, line, leader, and flies to fill the trout fly box with step-by-step photos and instructions on the forward cast, sidearm cast, roll cast, and slack-line cast and includes six knots you need to know * Choosing the correct imitation at the best size to match the insects on the water and how to fish with searching patterns * How to find trout, present the fly correctly, set the hook, and play the fish and expand your skills to the double haul cast, used for catching bass and pike Many people are intimidated by the subtleties of fly casting, the myriad of flies, and the fine points of entomology, all of which make up the sport of fly fishing. Getting started does require a set of skills and knowledge about casting, fly selection, knot tying, reading the water, and tactics, and Basic Fly Fishing provides these essential facts and skills so you can get out on the water and catch fish.
