Description

Containing what are surely some of the most beautiful and richest color images of the sport ever produced, "The Longest Cast" is not just a must-have for anyone who has ever wanted to experience the jitters and fun of catching a tigerfish in Botswana or has dreamed of casting a fly in the cold waters on the roof of the world in Bhutan; it will captivate anyone who marvels at the beauty of nature in the world's most secluded and unspoiled hideaways. In his search for pristine fishing locations, Alexander Taylor has journeyed to the far stretches of the globe, presenting the reader with essays about fly fishing on the Rio Grande in Argentina, the South Island rivers of New Zealand, off Andros Island in the Bahamas, and in many other extraordinary places. The stunning, full-color photographs capture with inimitable skill the beauty of these exotic fly-fishing landscapes. Each essay is followed by facts on the corresponding destination, including advice on when and where to go, strategies for success, and which tackle and flies to use. As much a testament to the beauty of nature as to the mysterious thrill of fly fishing, this book instills in its reader images and thoughts that otherwise would never have made it out of their private watery sanctuaries.show more
