“I have had the privilege of knowing Doug since the early ’70s and am proud to be his friend. His passion for the sport of fly fishing is easily noticeable in his writing and day-to-day conversations. Doug goes way deeper than just catching fish. He is always happy to share what he has learned with others, which I feel puts him at the head of the class! His vast knowledge and research are proven in his new book.” —Jim Teeny, www.jimteeny.com
“A few years ago, I ran into Doug Stewart at his booth in the Portland Sportsman’s Show and we reminisced about our youthful years. Doug was tying his well-known steelhead fly called the Max Canyon and wearing his unique trademark English tweed fishing hat as we talked about fishing and fly tying. Our paths have crossed many times since, tying flies together at fishing shows and an occasional day of fishing.
“Doug’s new book, The Practical Fly Fisher, is a direct reflection about the life of an avid fly fisherman and teacher, and his knowledge and easygoing style have helped him teach people with all levels of abilities. His writing includes insights into solving problems as well as humorous and down-to-earth stories. Last, but not least, it conveys his message that we should connect ourselves with the past in order to appreciate where we are today. I’m happy to call the man in the tweed hat my friend.” —Lee Clark, coauthor of Fly Tying with Poly Yarn and the originator of Clark’s Stonefly
“I have fished with Doug for many years and have promoted his earlier works. His writing is interesting, informative, and spiced with humorous adventures. The strategies and techniques in his book will sharply improve your confidence, skills, and ultimate success. In simple terms, his distinctive style makes for a fun read and is invaluable for anyone who enjoys fly fishing and activities in the outdoors.” —Rick Toland, lifelong friend
This former fly shop owner distills knowledge from over 32 years of teaching customers how to fish at beginning to intermediate levels. Includes 100s of illustrations and real world examples for: casting, equipment, tying flies, reading water, feeding habits, and strategy for a stretch of river.
