My father taught me how to fly fish starting around age 8. I loved it and took off from there. I didn't do such a good job passing it on to my kids, so I was looking for a book I could leave for my kids when I leave them my fly rod and reel collection. I also hope to get my grandchildren interested as well. Brooks book is a treasure trove of the art of fly fishing with chapter after chapter of information on every aspect of the sport. The book is chock full of old black and white photos of Brooks applying his trade, reminding me of my father. I would certainly recommend this book to any fly fishing advocate, and certainly think this will be a classic for many more generations.
Everything you ever wanted to know about fly fishing but were afraid to ask...
I am very disapointed with this book. McNally wastes a lot of time pumping himself up by telling us about how he won some distance casting contests back in his prime, how fly line used to be labeled when he first got into fly fishing, and other useless info. His section on fly casting is pitiful and provides no real information to a beginner. The funniest part is his fly casting problems and remedies - I've seen better information on an index card. His section on fly tying is also useless.
The final offense is that in several pictures of trout, McNally describes how the trout was handled gently and released carefully. Then in the saltwater fishing section, he catches a small dolphin and shows a picture of himself gaffing the dolphin with a caption that reads "Dolphins are good eating!".
McNally might be a great fly fisher but his book as awful. I would recommend the LLBean book over this one for beginners anyday.
Might be the best book on fly fishing ever written.
On the orher hand the picture was of a book with dust cover. Book arrived without dust cover. Fraud?
Very complete compilation of information.
Very informative book. A large bit of information that is great for those just getting into fly fishing
Best Fly Fishing information which I have ever read. I have been fly fishing most of my life, but I still picked up some excellent
techniques from Joe Brooks. All Fly Fishermen should own this book! Great stuff!
Great book
