Abstract:

"The best fly fishers stalk their quarry with specialized tactics in flowing water, working the streambed terrain, maintaining concealment, and responding to the fish's natural instincts for feeding and protection. This is streamcraft, the art of adapting to the many varied situations an angler encounters in moving water. Not just another introduction to the sport, Fly Fishing in Rivers and Streams is like having a patient, experienced guide teach you the knowledge, skills, and tactics of streamcraft. Whether you're fishing a slow, brush-shrouded spring creek, a wide-open tailwater, or a fast-flowing freestone river, this book will help you hook and land more trout, enjoy fishing more, and gain a deeper appreciation of the craft." "Let Terry Lawton show you how to: Scout the places where fish are concealed, Select the right tackle and gear for the fish and the situation, Read the rise and match the hatch, Approach fish without spooking them, Present your fly in the most natural and enticing manner, Play a hooked fish in moving water, And much more. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
