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.

The Salmonfly
Item # 499502

NEW! THE SALMONFLY - Guide to the Dream Hatch of the West by Skip Morris. The Awe-Inspiring Salmonfly Hatch. Fly fishers travel from all over the world to attend the legendary Salmonfly hatch that takes place every year in Western North American Rivers. Why do they make such a trek? How about great stout nymphs and flying adults almost two inches long driving big trout mad-do you think that might explain it? Learn critical techniques for successful fishing. This Salmonfly guide covers the flies, strategies, tackle, timing, and fine-but-critical points that make for success when these amazing insects are all over the river. The Salmonfly hatch (and the hatch of another stonefly almost as big) can provide incredible fishing... if you do a number of critical things right (and bring a little luck with you)-it can be a tricky hatch to mine. Fish the hatch without understanding it and you can be in for slow fishing. So unless you're an old hand at working the Salmonfly hatch (and even if you are, you may find some important insights), you need an edge. This Salmonfly guide will provide you that edge, and more. Illustrations appear wherever they best express details and ideas-rigs for nymph and dry-fly fishing, the important effects on sun and cloud cover and shade on fishing, effective hook setting with unseen nymphs, and more. 9 QR codes to take you directly to video segments that support or add to the chapter's ideas. Softbound, 120-pages, 5.5" x 8.25", full-color with illustrations.

Fly Fishers Guide To Colorado's Lost Lakes & Secret Places
Item # 499570

FLY FISHER'S GUIDE TO COLORADO'S LOST LAKES & SECRET PLACES" - Colorado's high elevation offers spectacular, often tremendous fishing that is more often relayed via rumor than reliable report. But in the Flyfisher's Guide to Colorado's Lost Lakes and Secret Places, veteran angler Mike Kephart gives you the scoop on which Colorado mountain and wilderness lakes and creeks fish well, how to get there, the difficulty of access, and what you can expect to catch. These largely untapped fisheries can be off the table to anglers who can't invest the time and effort required to access them only to find poor fishing. Kephart has done the leg-work - and the cast-work - to determine which lakes hold the big ones, the high populations, the hatches, and the rare species like greenback cutthroat and golden trout. The fish in these hard-to-access places can be eager to eat, so getting to the right ones is worth the effort. Beyond the lakes, Kephart covers some remote canyons and gorges, and side canyons within gorges where he's found excellent fishing. The author has done the research, sometimes fishing the lakes several times before discovering the bounty. He also covers forest fires, oil development and grazing as those topics apply to fly fishing in the area. Mike Kephart has paid his dues and yours - take advantage of this great opportunity with this new guide. Includes GPS coordinates. Souftbound, 9" x 6", 366-pages.
