Two highly respected outdoor journalists, Charlie Meyers of the Denver Post & Kirk Deeter of Field & Stream, have cracked open their notebooks & shared straight-shot advice on the sport of fly fishing, based on a range of new & old experiences—from interviews with the late Lee Wulff to travels with maverick guides in Tierra del Fuego.
The mission of The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing is to demystify & un-complicate the tricks & tips that make a great trout fisher. There are no complicated physics lessons here. Rather, conceived in the "Take dead aim" spirit of Harvey Penick's classic instructional on golf, The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing offers a simple, digestible primer on the basic elements of fly fishing: the cast, presentation, reading water, & selecting flies. In the end, this collection of 240 tips is one of the most insightful, plainly spoken, & entertaining works on this sport—one that will serve both novices & experts alike in helping them reflect & hone in their approaches to fly fishing.
