Survival Guide For Beginning anglers
Item # 499490

NEW! SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR BEGINNING ANGLERS - The Complete Beginner's How-to Guide for Learning to Fly Fish by Skip Morris. This book makes learning to fly fish easy-and fun! And it teaches this magnificent sport in new and highly effective ways. TWO COMPREHENSIVE DVD's ARE INCLUDED WITH THE BOOK. The instructions are a snap to follow, and pared down to only what you need to know in order to start catching fish. In fact rather than offering heaps of information on all kinds of rare and exotic species and kinds of fly fishing, it limits itself to sound and appropriately thorough instruction on just four kinds of fly fishing you can find almost anywhere in North America; two of the types are found around the world. Learning something new always goes best when you're not overwhelmed with mountains of advanced or largely impractical detail. Covers all of the basics, PLUS equipment, flies and the creatures they imitate, knots, casting and much more. Learn how to catch trout in rivers, bass and panfish in lakes and ponds, smallmouth bass in rivers, and trout in lakes. At the end of each of these four chapters on different kinds of fly fishing comes a narrative walking you through a typical day of such fishing-basically, you go out fishing for a day with Skip, get the feel of the fishing, see and experience it in your mind. A great way to prepare you for actually going out on your first fishing adventure. Softbound, 9" x 11", 80-page full color book plus 2-DVD set.
