There has long been a divide between flyfishing and coarse fishing - but there is no reason for it! Over 3 million people in Britain fish one way or the other - and there is growing interest in combining these two major areas of the sport.
Coarse anglers are discovering the advantages of catching their favourite species in this exciting and intimate way. The reasons are simple enough: virtually any fish will take a fly, you can see it 'as it happens' and the fight of a fish on a flyrod is nothing short of sensational. This book shows you how to flyfish for each different species: the techniques, the flies, the tackle. Flyfishing for Coarse Fish will appeal to:
* Fly and coarse fishers wanting to try something new.
* Those wanting to introduce coarse fishing youngsters to the art of flyfishing, at a fraction of the cost.
* Those living in areas where flyfishing would not other wise be available, or at such an affordable price.
