Add the other two parts and this is an excellent overall view of all three areas. Because of the comprehensive approach, it is one of the best "how to" books on fly-fishing available.
Don't be fooled by the "L.L.Bean" title--the book does not promote their products. It is a top-rated introduction to fly fishing, casting, and tying.
The second half of the book deals with fly tying. This section may be of less interest to a novice but is also well written and provides a useful introduction to the subject. I suspect most readers will quickly outgrow this section once they start to tie their own flies but it helps you to start without buying another book.
To describe this as an "ultimate book of fly fishing" stretches the truth but it is a very, very good one for anyone who is new to the sport or who is looking to improve their casting technique(s).
Highly recommended for anyone considering fly fishing (there are well reasoned recommendations for equipment for a variety of fish) and those who want to cast like a pro.
I should say, it is a decent book, but has a lot of room for improvement.
