"I recommend Fly Fisher's Playbook to all fishers looking to learn, but it is truly indispensable for the novice to intermediate fly fishers out there. Not only does Duane explain the basics of effective fly fishing, he also gives the readers the tools to grow and learn to be better fishermen on their own. I have always been puzzled by the lack of empiricism in teaching fishing; now that has finally changed."--Logan Johnson, Pro Staff, R. L. Winston

"As a senior guide, I am often asked by higher-ups to show a new guide around the waters. Most guides are in a hurry to impress me with their accomplishments, their aspirations, and what we guides call 'fluff' to hide the holes in their fishing game. But during our first few days together, I quickly realized Duane Redford was different. He had no drive to impress me. Instead, he asked great questions with a sense of youthful excitement, logic, and humility. He wanted to learn more, he wanted to be great for his clients, and he was willing to work hard outside his usual comfort zone to get there. Duane possesses the qualities of a humble teacher, a seasoned coach, and a top guide. I have much to steal from him."--Bob Streb,, Senior Guide and Fly Tier, Minturn Anglers

"A must-have for all fly fishermen. What would normally take an angler years to learn is all at your fingertips in 152 pages."--Jack Moreno,, Guide, Moreno Guide Service
