"This Guide may be the single most valuable item a novice angler can buy . . . and most of us would do well to re-read the sections on flies, fly selection, and stream tactics every spring before pulling on our waders for the first time."

Included here are instructions for tackle selection; casting and presentation; flies and their specific uses; essential knots and how to tie them properly; successful techniques on stream, pond, or ocean; and information on the best tackle, flies, and methods for pursuing major gamefish in fresh and salt water, from bluegill to tarpon.
