From the Back Cover
With new illustrations and paintings by renowned fly-fishing artist Bob White, this wholly rewritten edition addresses every significant requirement of the sport and provides an excellent foundation for pleasurable years of fishing. 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.

I'm a "beginner" in the sense that I haven't fly-fished for years...at least 15 or 16 years. The sport has changed quite a bit and I've invested in some better gear this time around (though still not the high-end expensive stuff). The chapter on flies - types, sizes, when to use them, etc. - is invaluable and represents the best reading in the book so far. I would also recommend "The Orvis Guide to Reading Trout Streams", also by Tom Rosenbauer.
As usual, Amazon had this book for much less (over $5 less) than Orvis' website and others. And with Prime, you get free 2-day shipping. Can't go wrong.
