This book explains the basics of fly fishing for the complete novice, from the tackle you need - rods, lines and flies - to how to use them - casting and retrieving, choosing flies and tying knots. Also described are the various habitats of fish - from huge lakes to tiny streams - as well as where you'll find fish, and advice on the best ways of catching them. Follow the advice and you'll soon be fishing with confidence - and results!
Keith Draper distils the experience of a lifetime spent fishing the trout-rich waters of New Zealand. He passed away in 2000 and Graham Wiremu, who edited the first edition twenty years ago, has revised and updated this new edition.
