Fly-Fish Better

Practical Advice on Tackle, Methods, and Flies

Book Description

  • Solve or avoid common fly-fishing problems, make the best use of tackle, and catch more fish
  • The best rod for the job, matching the line weight to the rod for particular situations, knot tying (clear photos show how it's done), hooks and sharpening, coping with tiny flies, fishing the salt, releasing fish

    After busting more than half a mile of tippet material testing various connections, Art Scheck has come up with the best rigging methods for freshwater fly fishing, whether you want to keep things as simple as possible or build a rig with the greatest strength. But tackle is just one of the many areas he covers in this fly-fishing guide. He also hits on techniques and methods for using various types of flies, the whereabouts of fish and the general kinds of foods they eat between hatches, and all sorts of tricks that can make fly fishing less frustrating and more fun.
