Unless you’re very wealthy, to fish with a fly is to strike a delicate balance between necessity and self-indulgence. You need to have at least a bare-bones assortment of gear and knowledge, but the urge toward exploring every possible fishing opportunity has to be tempered by reality. How to make the most of the resources that are available to you? How do you balance the gear needs of the sport with the restrained, bare-bones sensibility that is so vital to enjoying yourself on the water?
|With humor, insight, and a rare access to the industry, fly-fishing outfitter and author Patrick Straub takes readers on a tour of everything the budget-minded fly-fisherman needs to knowfrom the right gear for the right price to local free seminars on fly-casting and tying, from tips on the best waters for the best price to profiles of the hardcore enthusiasts who manage to fly-fish on a budget.
