Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference
Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing
[Revised and Updated] Atlantic salmon angling is intimidating to some, challenging for most, and second-nature to a few. To help the first two groups, and entertain (perhaps intrigue) the last, Paul Marriner has distilled more than fifty years of experiences on some 150 publicly-accessible salmon rivers into Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference. For example, Chapter 10 - Patterns, focuses on designs to cope with the range of conditions (e.g., pool type, season, water conditions, time of day) encountered streamside. Although each design is illustrated with a successful pattern, the intent is to simultaneously educate and encourage innovation. In 233 pages including more than 300 images and illustrations, bibliography and index, the author covers the tools, techniques and tactics necessary to hook the pinnacle of freshwater fly fishing, the Atlantic salmon, wherever they are found. This Kindle edition is an updated and revised edition of the print edition.Here's what one reviewer wrote about the print edition: "Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference is a carefully researched, comprehensive treatise on fishing for Atlantic salmon, with reference to rivers in Canada, the north eastern USA, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, and Russia’s Kola Peninsula...There have been...

The Orvis Beginner's Guide to Carp Flies: 101 Patterns & How and When to Use Them (Orvis Guides)
The Orvis Beginner's Guide to Carp Flies: 101
Learn tips and tricks for all new flies sure to catch carp!Carp are one of the most widely distributed and abundant fish in North America. Their prodigious size and habit of finning in shallow water make them appear to be easy fly-fishing targets. In reality, most anglers quickly discover that they are extremely difficult to hook on a fly. It takes years to discover how to catch them consistently. The reason? Carp can be very selective about what flies they will take.This book will help to short-circuit that learning curve. Carp's selectivity can be boiled down to diet. Understanding what they are eating allows the angler to choose and tie a fly that will produce. The Orvis Beginner’s Guide to Carp Flies walks the flyfisherman through the steps of identifying the most likely food source, illustrating the best patterns that imitate that food, and discussing how to effectively present those flies. With detailed information on tying all of the important carp flies, this book eliminates months of trial and error in your fly selection.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen.
