The 18-time champion caster and fly fishing icon returns with an updated and richly illustrated guide to improving your casting, with in-depth analysis of every practical cast needed by the fly fisher, including an introduction to Spey casting.
This remarkable book is for everyone who fishes with a fly rod—or wants to learn. In its first edition, Joan Wulff’s Fly-Casting Techniques became an instant classic, revolutionizing the art form of fly casting and changing how an entire generation approached the sport. Now, with Joan Wulff’s New Fly Casting Techniques, Joan brings her pioneering set of casting “mechanics” to a new audience, offering precise descriptive terms for every part of the cast. Sections are included on improving accuracy and distance, loop control, shooting lines, aerial mending, the double haul, correcting common mistakes, and more. With improvements and refinements on her original techniques, and with a set of extraordinary drawings by David Shepherd, this becomes the most comprehensive book ever written on fly casting.
206 pages, 8.5 X 11 inches, with more than 100 illustrations and photos
Joan Wulff is the first instructor to unravel the mystery of fly casting to the point of pioneering a set of mechanics. She is the author of Fly-Casting Accuracy, Joan Wulff's Fly Fishing: Expert Advice from a Woman's Perspective, and an instructional DVD The Dynamics of Fly Casting. Over a period of sixteen years, she won one international and seventeen national casting championships, and she is the recipient of numerous awards relating to her efforts in both the fishing industry and conservation. In 1996 Joan offered the first-ever schools for instructors of fly casting and became a consultant to the R. L. Winston Rod Company to further the development of tackle for women.
