Becoming a Fly Fisher: From Br

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


John Randolph's wise and riveting memoir of precisely how one begins to fly fish, learns the dozens of necessary skills, and finally advances to true mastery is destined to become an angling classic. It begins with early days on "brookie water, " an idyll of fishing small creeks for the most beautiful of native fish, and advances to thoughtful explorations of different rivers, hatches, the problems and mechanics of casting, and flies.There are chapters on "Fly Fishing Sounds, " the religion of fly fishing, "The Wise Men" (Lee Wulff, Ernest Schwiebert, Lefty Kreh, Dave Whitlock, George Anderson, and others), and the literature of the sport; and there is a long chapter on the author's catching of a fish of a lifetime, in Alaska. And finally, there is a brilliant section called "The Tenth Level, " which shows the expertise that has been achieved by a rare few who combine all the various skills necessary for a great fly fisherman into a stunning whole.
