Pioneering guide to fly fishing along cold-water seacoasts will take freshwater fishermen to sea, & it will show saltwater fisherman how to fish a fly. B&W & color photos, diagrams & charts; 7x9 inches, 328 pgs.
More and more anglers are discovering the thrills and challenges of saltwater fly fishing. This book covers everything you need to know to fly fish inshore without having to head south.
This book has been needed - and anxiously awaited - for decades; it fills a serious gap in fly-fishing literature, with its focus on fly fishing. In this classic book, expert Lou Tabory provides professional advice on how to fly fish for striped bass, bluefish, weakfish, and other cold-water marine species. Tabory clearly instructs on how to “read” rips, bars, beaches, flats, jetties, reefs, tidal estuaries, and all other important fishing areas. He outlines what tackle fly fishermen will need, which flies are most effective (and when and how), and how to hook and play these great northern gamefish. There are also special sections on tides, night fishing, the use of a stripping basket, drags, and drag systems—all that a beginning or expert marine fly fisherman will need for this new and exciting kind of fishing.
