"In any definition of fly fishing, there has to be room to explore and to discover new ways of doing things. For me new knowledge is at the heart and soul of fly fishing." -John Judy, from Slack Line Strategies for Fly Fishing

While many fly fishermen cherish the thrill of straight line power casting, a growing number of fishing experts are discovering that slack line casting is what really catches fish. In Slack Line Strategies for Fly Fishing, John Judy makes the case for slack line casting as an invaluable approach to fly fishing that all anglers can use to improve their chances of success. The book covers the basics, such as rod selection and water current pattern identification, as well as advanced strategies, such as how to locate and land the elusive steelhead. Filled with expert information, this entertaining book of instruction and example is an innovative addition to the fly fishermen's library.
