Description from flap -
Flyfishing is at once challenging and inspiring: it draws anglers to wild and beautiful rivers in search of trout and salmon that are equally wild, beautiful and elusive. It is that - and more. It is splitting the crotch of your waders when you're belly-button deep in an icy torrent. It is seeing the tip of your $400 fly rod inexplicably drawn, like a wayward dowser's switch, to a closing car door. That's life, and that's flyfishing. The Little Book of Flyfishing is an honest book portraying the thrill of victory and the agony of piscatorial defeat. Anyone who has deftly thrown a fly to a rising trout or who tangled his line in an overhanging branch will smile, grimace, chortle, and knowingly nod at the familiar but rarely photographed vignettes depicted in this unusual book. The text accompanying the scenes - expletives deleted - will warm or wrench the heart of any true flyfishing aficionado.
