Individual taste in books varies as much as the favorite rod
or fly. With that in mind, we hope to review books and
videos from the ever-growing fly fishing world, and share
them with you. Books will be the best of all worlds, new
and old. Many of the old books are now available in reprint,
and the wisdom contained is timely today. Others can be
found in second-hand book stores, or by mail order dealers.
As we find videos we feel are outstanding they will be included.
Be assured, reviews are based on what we have actually read,
and due to that fact, may not appear weekly.

Saltwater Fly Fishing
Writen and Illustrated by Jeff Currier
Published by Greycliff Publishing
What nice thing to be able to read this
"Quick and Easy Guide" sitting on an airplane headed for warm
waters. Both JC and I read it. And can honestly say we learned
Many of the basics are in common-sense
language — a fine introduction to warm water, fly fishing the salt.
For the beginner, however there are absences in fish and methods
for cold saltwater. (Which are not indicated by the title). A small
complaint considering the overall quality of the book.
There are fine watercolor illustrations of fish
and flies, good color photos, maps of saltwater fish distribution,
lists of what you need to fish for specific fish where, and a very
detailed section on knots for the salt.
I particularly liked the sections on casting
and the hooking and playing of fish. Most of us don't have the
experience on our home waters of tying into big, strong,
aggressive fish commonly found in the saltwater. Jeff Currier
has made it seem simple. ~ DB
