Cathy Beck's revised and updated fly-fishing handbook covers all the basic elements of this popular sport: proper selection of tackle, clothing, and accessories; all the correct techniques, from casting and playing fish; and the spirit and ethics of the sport. The book is clear and practical, and filled with Cathy Beck's engaging voice, drawing on the best of her 15 years of professional instructional experience teaching both men and women, beginners, intermediates and experts. "There's nothing like hands-on instruction from an experienced teacher", she says. "Good instruction will save you time and get you quickly to where you can confidently go out on your own".
