Description

Fly fishing is a noble sport whose avid practitioners learn the skills of finesse, observation and technique-and that would be great if it all stopped there.

But fly fishing is more-oh so much more-than the streamside perfection of a mere handful of angling skills.

The broader curriculum also teaches us:

Frustration ("When we see trout feeding regardless of our fly... the resentment is almost like the anger of a madman." -Harold Russell);

Jealousy ("Flyfishing is like sex, everyone thinks there is more than there is, and that everyone else is getting more than their share." -Henry Kanemotto);

Lying ("The question is not whether successful fishermen believe in God, but vice versa." -Don Roberts); and

Obstinance ("If I'm not going to catch anything, then I'd rather not catch anything on flies." - Bob Lawless).

What Fly Fishing Teaches Us relates these lessons and many more in pithy words from angling literature and dazzling Denver Bryan photographs.

Fly anglers who have found utter enjoyment and headache-inducing frustration will recognize themselves in this delightful book.
