Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lively, comprehensive, and well-written, packed with fly-fishing tips and essential fundamentals that go well beyond the "family" scope and purpose of this book.  I wish I'd seen it years ago and highly recommend it."

--Peter Matthiessen, National Book Award Winner and author The Snow Leopard and Shadow Country

"Tom Rosenbauer has produced a remarkably clear and concise book... . First, Rosenbauer explains that a first-time angler should start with a push-button rod. No need to make things too complicated, too quickly. Second, he focuses the subject matter on many species of fish. There might be more bluegills in this fly-fishing book than any other 'general instruction' book I have seen. Third, Rosenbauer hits the obvious topics--what gear, what flies, where to find fish, and how to make them eat--but he also hits the topics mom is wondering about--like how to plan a family vacation, and how to stay safe.

"More importantly, Rosenbauer dedicates an entire chapter to conservation. In the context of creating a generation of anglers, it's important to understand that being a 'complete' angler involves having a conscience when it comes to resources, as well as an ability to catch fish.

"We get that. Yet there are many other nuances in this book that make it worthwhile for even the most seasoned mentors. Add this one to your library, but be sure to take it off the shelf and put it to use regularly."

--Kirk Dieter, review in Trout, the quarterly publication of Trout Unlimited

"The book has plenty of solid tips on how to get a family interested in fly fishing, and the topic needs plenty of thought and understanding to do it right. With the wrong approach, a fly-fishing parent can get a child or spouse solidly hooked into the sport or turn someone off cold... .

"...just let me say that The Orvis Guide to Family Friendly Fly Fishing makes me jealous. I wish I came up with the idea for the book first. What better endorsemebt can a reviewer give than that?"

--Ken Allen, Maine Sportsman

 

From the Back Cover

Like all sports, the fun of fly-fishing lies in sharing the experience and in spending time with those closest to you. And yet for a father unsure how to connect with his bored, PlayStation-dazed kids, for a beginning fisherman who doesn’t want to learn casting techniques by himself, for a mother who would love to show her children the outdoors but isn’t quite sure how to begin, it can be a frustrating and intimidating business.

From one of the most trusted brands in the industry, and from one of the sport’s most esteemed authors, The Orvis Guide to Family-Friendly Fly-Fishing by Tom Rosenbauer will take the mystery out of sharing the experience.

Rosenbauer provides instructional guidance, discusses the nuts and bolts of casting, fly choice, and technique, and opens the lens to discuss family-friendly destinations, gear, schools, safety, and more.

Rosenbauer brings his expertise to bear on perhaps the most essential skill set of all—introducing the people closest to you to your beloved sport.
