By Allen R. Crise on February 20, 2000
Format: Paperback
Here is a book that is put together to help anybody get started teaching (learning as you go)the great sport of fly fishing. Mr Genova has compiled a format to include saltwater and fresh water fly fishing. Not only has he set up a format that will work he has included what is needed in supplies and equipment and where to obtain help. He included 'side bars' these side bars are comments and tips from many well known persons in the fly fishing world a long with some from his students. This book will be a guide long after you have several classes behind you. It is a teacher/instructors guide and sets an order to follow when teaching. Not just kids but anybody that wants to learn. With chapters on fly tying, fly casting, and bug collecting, from the class room to the landing of the fish Mr, Genove has covered what you should know and how to help teach the fundlementals and the ethics of the sport. There is only black and white pictures and drawings, no color prints. The format some times leaves you jumping around. As with any sport there are many ways to do some things he only cover some of them. My copy will guide me for years to come. As a FFF Certified Fly Casting Instructor I will keep this book for MY referance book.

Overall a good book. But quite a lot is actually spent on "how to tie fly x" or on casting moves. I would have loved to see more on what angles to make sure kids stay interested, at what particular age you can do this or that, how to teach to kids of x years versus teaching to kids over y years...etc.

By H. Schmalz on January 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
Have just started reading this book. It is wholistic, generous, patient, and full of hope. Advice is extremely practical. I have 4 year old and while he is still a bit young, he is for example, already extremely interested in flies and fly-tying, which resonantes with the author's advice to start with this aspect of the sport. This is a carefully and well thought-out book, particularly if you have a heart for kids. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book takes a child and more importantly their parent through some of the most enduring elements of a stream side investigation, well timed casting and reading the ripples on the water. Great book for time with daughters or sons.
