This book grew from the author's desire to consolidate the many teachings that he uses in his popular fly-fishing classes. It is a textbook that includes concise and selective commentary on tackle, casting, tactics, flies and fly tying, and other related topics. The word "companion" derives from “one with whom we share our bread.” After more than fifty years of fly fishing, the author would like to sit at the streamside and share these observations with readers. Here is the knowledge and understanding that he wished he had when he began fly fishing. While the handmade steel hooks, horsehair lines, and carefully crafted wooden loop-rods have long given way to nylon and fluorocarbon leaders, multipiece graphite rods, and synthetic lines, the fundamentals of the craft have remained basically the same. In The Fly-Fisher’s Companion, the author carefully goes through all the basics, all within the context of modern fly-fishing situations. This companion may serve as a foundation or a supplement for fly-fishing instruction. It may also be a reminder or reference for the more experienced angler. As a retired educator, the author recognizes that instructors present material in different ways. Instructors may wish to select only those topics that fit their syllabus while omitting others. Over the years, these instructions and commentary have produced a host of competent fly fishers. We all learn by image, word, and action. Since the sepia days of Walton and Cotton, fly fishing has been an enthralling sport. And, as this companion hopefully makes clear, there is more to fishing than fish. There is an infinite amount of pleasure in learning a skill and doing it well. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing.

On angling as a woman in the first half of the twentieth century. Like fast moving currents, the fishing tales in The Fly Fisher and the River move us through a selection of Max Atherton’s experiences both within rivers’ waters as well as at their outer edges. They remind us that alongside the (then-) radical environmentalist-explorer part of her, there was a playful joie de vivre, someone who appreciated the company of good-looking, intelligent outdoorsmen. Even before her husband’s death, Max enjoyed the attention she got as a fisherwoman. While she cherished a few female friendships, Max held the opinion that women did not generally engage their minds as much as they could and tended to settle for less in their lives than she was willing to. The men she liked—educated, with leisure time to fish—had more freedom and could have adventures and talk about ideas, politics, and the intricacies of fly fishing. This refined form of angling provided an escape from the mundane, and Max enjoyed the adrenaline rush of fishing and camping in the great outdoors as much as the meditative quiet time in nature. Her expertise provided the entrée she needed to thrive in a man’s world—a fact reflected in her writing about the joys of casting her lines into one river after another.

With humor and compassion, author J. H. Hall chronicles the joys and tribulations of Maine fly fishermen, their loved ones, and their adversaries. Hall's characters share a passion for fly-fishing-their lifeline-and an indifference to most of society's other conventions. Whether building an indoor trout stream, robbing a bank, or waging mischief against a market-savvy, modernist guide, these characters gallantly struggle to preserve a way of life and a part of Maine that is rapidly disappearing. Praise for previously published works by J. H. Hall: Paradise: Stories of a Changing Chesapeake: "Hall's portrayal glows like a watercolor. He mobilizes his language in quick, sure strokes: subdued, taut, winsome by turns." -Ramon de Rosas, Maine In Print "Michael Crichton is not the only doctor-turned-writer to come down the pike in the past few years In fact, I would say he's not even the best. The author I've just discovered [J. H. Hall] is considerably better " -Cheryl Nowak, Eastern Shore News Selling Fish: Stories from a Fishing Life: " Jim Hall has always been dead serious about fishing. Those of you who feel the same way will love and understand this book" -John Cole, author of Striper and In Maine

Sprinkled in between the fly dressings and tying lessons—and alongside his own personal anecdotes—longtime fishing guide Doug Stewart shares insights and instructions that will add to your fishing success in this illustrated guide. The Practical Fly Fisher will help you become a more complete angler, a better fly tier, and a more successful fly fisher. On top of covering all aspects of fly fishing: casting, proper equipment, tying flies, reading water, the feeding habits of fish, and the proper strategy for fishing a stretch of river, included inside in the book are the secrets of Doug’s favorite patterns. Doug Stewart, a lifelong fly fisher, is also a fly-tying instructor, guide and a fly shop owner. He has written about fly-fishing for The Oregon Sportsman and Amato Publications. Doug spent many years teaching customers how to fly fish during the thirty-two years he owned Stewart’s Fly Shop. “I think I get more out of teaching someone, out of seeing them be successful or catch their first fish, than I do out of catching my own,” Doug says.

Bestselling angling author Gene Kugach has compiled a wide-range gallery of flies, some familiar, some obscure, that will enhance any fly tier's repertoire. Culled from tying demonstrations presented at the Chicago Fly Fishers, a Chicago-area club, this collection features favourite patterns and variations, as well as originals created by club members, including many by the author. Each fly is illustrated, its origin and uses given, and its tying steps explained in detail. Patterns include wets, drys, streamers, nymphs, crustaceans, leeches, terrestrials, and lure-streamer combinations.
