Fly casting might look easy—you just move the rod back and forth, right? Yes, that's true, but between “back” and “forth,” a lot can go wrong. The perfect marriage of human skill and dexterity to the cork and graphite of today's fly rods takes a good bit of work, and this is the how-to book that gets you around common mistakes and bad moves so that you can develop the muscle memory that makes for easy, accurate, and highly successful fly casting. Author Al Kyte's instruction, with numerous full-color photographs, breaks down the parts of the cast to get you to better understand what is happening and how to put all of the parts of your cast together to make noticeable improvements.

One of the most studied yet intimidating aspects of fly fishing for trout is an understanding of insect hatches. This unique book teaches fly fishers enough entomology to be successful, and instead of focusing on insect identification, it stresses learning how to approach trout, how to find where they feed, and how to present the fly so it is accepted as natural food without hesitation. It helps fly fishers catch more fish on dry flies, streamers, and nymphs, and teaches the angler more about trout than the life history of insects. Published in association with The Orvis Company.
