Practical fly-fishing guide, from a guide who knows how to teach.
7 simple, easy to understand lessons on often-overlooked fundamentals: drift, reading water, position of angler and rod, casting, line control, mending.
Chapters on dry-fly fishing, nymphing, best rigs, and essential guide flies.
“[Stroup’s] seven common-sense principles and the illustrations by Dave Hall take a lot of the frustrating guesswork out of what many consider a difficult sport. . . . Reading this book is like having a guide accompany you on every trip, and it should be a valuable addition to your fly-fishing library.”
Veteran guide Eric Stroup owns and operates Spruce Creek Fly Company in Spruce Creek, Pennsylvania, and has contributed many articles to major fly-fishing magazines.
