Abstract:

Graeme Marshall has guided hundreds of anglers over a career spanning more than 30 years. This book describes many of the obstacles to success he has encountered, but more importantly presents strategies and possible solutions to the myriad of problems. This is a book for thoughful anglers of all levels of expertise.

Fly fishing for trout has been written about for hundreds of years. there are easier ways of catching trout but the fascination of fly fishing endures into the modern era. Despite major advances in equipment and countless variations on patterns of fly the actual method is remarkably faithful to that pioneered by the earliest exponents. Essentially, fly fishing involves the use of a long, flexible rod, a line which floats or sinks, a thinner leader so as not to disturb the quarry unduly, and an artificial fly of some description. Least important is a reel to hold the aforementioned line. Modern reels come with complicated drag systems. But a skilful angler can easily cope with a dragless reel.
