Simple Fly Fishing Techniques
Techniques for tenkara and rod and reel
Reveals that the best way to catch trout is simply, with a rod & a fly & not much else. The wisdom in this book comes from a simpler time, when the premise was: the more you know, the less you need.
This guide teaches the reader how to discover where the fish are, at what depth, and what they are feeding on. Then it describes the techniques needed to present a fly at that depth, make it look lifelike, and hook the fish. With chapters on wet flies, nymphs, and dry flies, its authors employ both the tenkara rod as well as regular fly fishing gear to cover all the bases. Illustrated by renowned fish artist James Prosek, with inspiring photographs and stories throughout, Simple Fly Fishing reveals the secrets and the soul of this captivating sport.
