Top Ten Guide to Fly Fishing (Lyons Press)

One of the most accessible guide books on the market, this guide not only provides all the information beginning and intermediate anglers need in order to start catching trout, the information is also presented in a quick and easy, highly-browsable format of top-ten lists.

Curious how to tie and use the ten best knots and rigging techniques? Ever thought about the ten most essential things to look for when selecting a new fly rod? What are the top dry flies for trout? What mistakes do most new anglers make when learning to cast?

A fun conversation starter and a set of streamside tips rolled into one, this lighthearted look at a serious sport will give beginners the value of solid instruction while more seasoned fly-fishers will enjoy quibbling with the author’s rankings and choices.

"I've never seen so much good advice in one place. All how-to fishing books should be written by people who work in fly shops." --John Gierach

  5. That's a great idea for a book. I look forward to reading it.


    As for Hank Patterson's review, better think twice about that. It's likely to go something like:

    "Top 10 things to do with this book, #10 - throw it in the garbage and listen to ol Hank. If it didn't come from Hank's mouth, it's garbage."

    2. Easter presents?.... why not.. Im gonna read it to see how you handle the top ten angle, you certainly must have had to expand beyond your own opinions to reach ten on most subjects... if your anything like myself and many fly fishers then you must feel strongly about many things.. making ten options or ideas somewhat difficult to reach.. Brave writer-

    1. Says the d-bag at a lodge in Alaska. No shit. "All that bullshit"...? Read the book before you make that sort of judgement, fucktard.
