More Information
The foundations of fly-fishing history, literature, and mechanics are firmly anchored in the disciplines of science, yet until now, there has been no comprehensive work that integrates scientific components into the sport of angling for trout and other game fish. The Science of Fly-Fishing fills that void. Stan L. Ulanksi presents the basic elements of the physical and biological sciences in a way that helps the reader see their practical application to fishing.

The Science of Fly-Fishing is designed for anglers--whether they have any formal background in science or not--who are curious about the relevance of science to their sport. The angling-related scientific concepts revealed in the book require no more of the reader than a good dose of common sense and a willingness to expand his or her fly-fishing knowledge. Ulanskis thoughtful explorations of topics such as the physics of fly casting, the anglers environment, the diet of trout, and the role of lake geology and biology will help anglers reach a greater understanding of and appreciation for the natural aquatic home of their quarry.
