A fisherman's must have book.
Joan Wulff's Fly Fishing, Stackpole 1991 is the book I recommend to all fly fishing friends.
The chapter on casting, if I had read it when I began fly fishing, would have saved me 8 years of frustration, pain and cortisone shots.
But the book also covers the basics of everything about the sport from its heritage to casting, tackle, knots, reading water, striking and capturing, wading, ethics, guides and more. If one were to fly fish and be allowed only one book, this is the one.
Don't be put-off by the sub-title, "Expert Advice from a Woman's Perspective." The publisher put it there to attract the large number of new female fly fishers, and there is nothing in the book that does not apply to men.
