A licensed guide in the UK, John Symonds fishes with anglers of all talent levels, from rank beginners to experienced old-timers. He has seen the common mistakes that many fly fishers make and, over the years, has developed lessons that help anglers overcome their mistakes and really improve their fly-fishing prowess. In this book, Symonds teaches:

* Basic skills, from stringing your fly rod to tying on backing, fly line, leader, and tippet
* How to make casts for a variety of stream and lake conditions
* How to figure out what fish are feeding on, and then picking the proper imitation
* How to determine where fish are in lake or river
* Tips on using dry flies, nymphs, streamers, and caddis imitations
* And much, much more!

Symonds learned to fly fish through trial and error. As he did, he came to realize that finding good, basic information was difficult to come by. He fills that niche with this helpful little guidebook that is guaranteed to elevate your level of fishing.
