Fly fishing is an angling method in which an artificial "fly" is used to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line. Casting a nearly weightless fly or "lure" requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting. Fly fishermen use hand tied flies that resemble natural invertebrates or other food organisms, or "lures" to provoke the fish to strike. Profusely illustrated with expert instructional commentary by master fly fisher and fly fishing instructor Skip Morris, "Survival Guide for Beginning Fly Anglers" is an 80 page compendium that covers every aspect of fly fishing for the novice from the proper equipment needed, to tying knots and rigging up, to fly casting, to finding fish, to hooking, playing and landing fish. Separate chapters are dedicated to trout in rivers; largemouth bass and bluegills in lakes; smallmouth bass in rivers; other fishes, tying flies, fly fishing safety issues, and more. Thoroughly 'user friendly' from beginning to end, "Survival Guide for Beginning Fly Anglers" is a 'must' for those new to fly fishing, and has a great deal of useful relevance for even the more experienced angler.
