It avoids the technical jargon and heavy-handed emphasis on advanced techniques that you find in many fly fishing books, instead providing basic techniques in a conversational style with tips for continued improvement.

As lifelong teachers and fly fishermen, and the authors of over 20 books on fly fishing, Williams and McPhail apply their experience and expertise to help you choose gear, identify bugs and hatches, recognize trout species, and cast effectively. They then delve deeper into skills, strategies, and tactics like nymphing and dropper rigs, and touch on critical topics like stream etiquette, safe wading, fishing tailwaters, hiring guides, hiking into backcountry, using float tubes and kayaks, and much more.

Even if you don’t live near trout water, this invaluable guide will teach you the techniques of fly fishing, for panfish, perch, bass, redfish, and almost any other species with fins. Regardless of your skill level, An Introduction to Fly Fishing for Trout is an invaluable tutorial and guide that you’ll reference again and again.
