Lefty Kreh’s Presenting the Fly details the most essential analysis in fly-fishing: how to get the right fly to the right fish, in the right way, at the right time. This vastly comprehensive, large-format volume explains the ways that shape, color, and weight of the fly can determine success under varying conditions.
A fly-fishing master teaches the intricate art of properly presenting a fly.
Nothing is more important in fly fishing than successfully presenting the fly. No matter what rod, reel, line, and fly are used, the fish will not take if the fly is presented with a splash or out of target. In this comprehensive book, Lefty Kreh explains that the art of presentation is much more than dropping the fly in the best position—it also involves the clothes you wear, the methods you use to rig your tackle, how and where you approach the fish, the types of fly lines and reels you use, the direction of the light, the type of cover, and the retrieval method used, among other factors. Lefty delves into each of these subjects with his usual knowledgeable vigor.
Lefty also describes the different methods of presentation for the various species of fish—from trout and other freshwater species to fish that inhabit backcountry and inshore waters to exciting saltwater species like permit and even sharks.
