And the winner is…
My husband’s brother loves to fly fish! My husband always wanted to give this a try but never had time to learn. This would be ideal for him to start!
New to flyfishing? Don’t know who to ask or what to buy? Here you’ll find no-nonsense advice for the beginner flyfisher. Included are sections on rods, reels, flies, watercraft, accessories, and entomology. The book also includes a section on techniques to use when fishing the lakes and rivers of BC, Alberta, and Pacific Northwest. A great all-around reference to keep with you each time you head out to fish. Amazon.com
If you don’t know how to identify the insect activity in the fish’s habitat on any particular day, you’re not going to have much success on the water. The Freshman FlyFisher’s Insect Guide, the second in the series of Freshman FlyFisher books, makes learning all of that comfortable and interesting.
The Guide outlines basic information about the appearance, life cycle, and behaviors of the insects found in the stillwaters of Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Professional full color photos allow fly fishers to identify the insects right on site. Rick shares successful fishing techniques that are easy to follow and, most important of all, that make sense for each insect. Also included in the Guide are photos of artificial flies, so you can see exactly what you should put on the end of your fly line.
Rick Passek is a successful fly fishing instructor, speaker, and author of the Freshman FlyFishing book series. He is also owner and operator of Rp3 Fishing Adventures and FlyFishing School, and the popular FlyFish Fanatic web site and blog. Rick is Team Captain for a team competing in the 2009 Canadian National Fly Fishing Championships.
