So here, by an expert in casting and a fisherman who ties some very pretty flies of his own, is advice on what rod and reel and line to buy, what strength of nylon leader and size of fly to use; how to do the rolld cast and the steeple cast; how to do the 'double haul' that enables the fisherman to cast to quite incredible distances; with information about what insects are on the waters and what flies you should choose to match them; a chapter on the kindred art of nymph fishing; and, at all times, the author's reminiscences of the difficulties and delights of trout fishing days."

It is for the beginner who goes to the lakes and dams with spinner or live bait and hardly knows all of the pleasure and all the fish he is missing when the evening rise is on, and it is for the experienced fisherman who can always pick up a tip or two from a brother angler and enjoy a walk along the mountain streams with him. The dry fly, says John Turnbull, is not only the most efficient way to catch a trout, and not only by far the most satisfying way; it is also far easier than most beginners imagine. So here is advice on what rod and reel and line to buy, what strength of nylon leader and size of fly to use; how to do the roll cast and steeple cast; how to do the double haul that enable the fisherman to cast to quite incredible daistances; with information about what insects are on the waters and what flies you should to choose to match them; a chapter on the kindred art of nymph fishing; and, at all times, the author's reminiscences of the difficulties and delights of trout fishing days. Flies, knots and casting techniques are illustrated. Nº de ref. de la librería 41960AB
