SALTWATER FLY FISHING
Author: Joe Brooks
Publisher: NATIONAL BOOK NETWORK, Jan 2000
First pub in 1950, this easy-to-read guide to saltwater fishing covers rods, reels, lines, leaders, clothing, lures, & almost every major species of saltwater fish. 12 B&W photos; 7x10 inches, 224 pgs.
With the extraordinary and growing popularity of saltwater fly fishing today, we easily forget that this sport was only begun in the 1930s-1950s. Brooks was one of the earliest pioneers of salt water techniques and saltwater flies?both of which still catch fish today. His book, originally published in 1950, remains one of the best overall guides to the sport. With a new introduction by Joe Healy, editor of Saltwater Fly Fishing magazine.
"Brooks wrote the seminal work on [saltwater fly fishing], and his book remains a valuable and instructive how-to manual. His prose remains among the best in American outdoor writing." ?Art Scheck, Saltwater Fly Fishing
"This book also puts you in the company of Joe Brooks, one of the most pleasant and engaging angling companions a reader could have." ?Chris Camuto, Gray?s Sporting Journal
