A testament to the passion sportsmen feel for fly fishing. It seeks to speak to the dedication fly fishermen have for their favourite pastime. Whether you are a veteran fly fisher, a passionate weekend participant, or an enthusiastic beginner, this compilation should offer you a better understanding of and fervour for this magnificent sport. The work aims to provide a broader perspective and encourages you to form your own relationship with fly-fishing. It includes three chapters from Joan Wulff, Joe Humphreys and Lefty Kreh; interviews from experts in the field, and writers on the topic; plus artwork by James Prosek.
