Reading the River

We, as anglers, just want to get out on the water, catch fish, and take pleasure in what nature provides us. I have compiled this book from a range of resources, including my research and personal experience, the experience of multiple fly anglers, and fly fishing-guides. I have filtered the most important and essential elements of getting on fish, and sifted out the clutter of information that might be interesting but not essential. My aim is to save you time, so you can go out on the water and put these points into practice. This book gives you, the fly angler, the essential knowledge that most miss when they are on the water. Hours of research, hours of practical hands-on experience of multiple fly anglers, and a number of fly-fishing guides are all compressed into this book for you.This book is great fun to read.This book will give you the upper hand. This book will teach you how to read the river like a pro. This book will help you locate fish faster.
