Review

"No one I know understands the intricacies of successful fly fishing along the North American coast better."--Lefty Kreh

From the Back Cover

This book has been needed - and anxiously awaited - for decades; it fills a serious gap in fly-fishing literature - with its focus on fly fishing for striped bass, bluefish, weakfish, and other cold-water marine species. Tabory clearly instructs on how to "read" rips, bars, beaches, flats, jetties, reefs, tidal estuaries, and all other important fishing areas. He outlines what tackle fly fishermen will need, which flies are most effective (and when and how), how to hook and play these great northern gamefish. There are also special sections on tides, night fishing, the use of a stripping basket, drags and drag systems - all a beginning or expert marine fly fisherman will need for this new and exciting kind of fishing."No one I know," says Lefty Kreh in his Foreword to this pathbreaking book, "understands the intricacies of successful fly fishing along the northern Atlantic coast better than Lou Tabory." This pioneering guide will take freshwater fishermen to the sea and it will show saltwater fishermen how to fish a fly. (71/4 X 91/2, 236 pages, color photos, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)

Lou Tabory spells out every step and stage of how to fly fish in the salt for striped bass in this book! His writing is easily understandable and intelligent. He explains how to use the water to bring your flies to the fish, how to determine where the fish should be in many different types of water, which flies to choose in certain conditions and why, and he does all this is a manner that even a non-fly fisherman can understand!
He also introduces you to his flies, all are simple, all are well thought out and very effective! I've been fly fishing the suds for 10 years now and have come to reply on more than a few of Mr. Tabory's patterns, they are simply ingenious! Like I said, should be required reading!

When this book was mentioned in a thread on one of the large fly fishing forums I looked it up on Amazon and found a used early edition at a really great price. Lou Tabory, a seasoned New England saltwater fly fisherman, shares his vast knowledge on all things striped bass. Most important to me was learning how to identify the water conditions to find the most likely holding places for stripers. Much of this information can be found on the web if one looks around enough but here you have it all at your finger tips. All in all a great reference tome.

Being from Fairfield County, CT, the same as Lou Tabory, it seemed natural for me to buy his book, being that he learned most of his techniques here on Long Island Sound. What a great decision! Lou's book is a true masterpiece! Very thourough instruction, and plenty of tips. Whether you are an experienced flyrodder or a beginner, you'll gain vast amounts of knowledge from this great book! I know that it's helped me catch more stripers!
