Backpack Fly Fishing : A Back-to-Basics Approach (Paperback) (Daniel E. Steere)
About this item
Simplify! A simpler approach, simpler fishing trip, and simpler fly-fishing mindset.Fly-fishing has exploded as a popular sport during the past three decades, as attested to by the wide range of books, articles, and DVDs that have appeared on the market. Increasingly, the approach advocated in these materials has been toward greater specialization (trout vs. bass, freshwater vs. saltwater, lightweight vs. heavier weight rods and reels) and complexity. This trend has taken many anglers away from what they loved best about fly-fishing: catching a wide variety of fish with simple, minimalist equipment that can fit into a daypack. Backpack Fly Fishing helps readers to understand why we need to get back to a simpler approach and how to enjoy doing it.In Backpack Fly Fishing, Daniel E. Steere provides a comprehensive philosophy for this back-to-basics approach to fishing. He includes chapters on equipment selection, fish that can be caught using this equipment and how to catch them, how to approach different types of waters, and important flies and how to tie them. Additional chapters address how backpack fly-fishing fits into the context of other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and birding.The proposed book is directed at several different audiences, including current fly fishers who want to try a less complicated, back-to-basics approach; spin and bait fishers who want to try the sport of fly fishing without breaking the bank on fishing equipment; and hikers, campers, bicyclists, and other outdoors people who want to be able to fish in waters that they happen upon in their journeys through the wilds.
