Originally published in 1975 and now available for the first time in paperback, Fly Fishing Strategy presents a classic system of practical fishing techniques - casts, approaches, patterns, and equipment - that every fly-fishing enthusiast can use.
Here are special casts, like the curve casts for upstream fishing, that you can apply to common situations astream. Here is the noted Swisher-Richards casting method, based on the theory of casting dynamics developed in the authors' casting schools. And there are innovative Swisher-Richards patterns, including their Stillborn Duns, and a No-Wing spinner pattern, as well as the authors' recommendations for fishing the rises and when no rise is apparent, with wet and dry patterns.
Fly Fishing Strategy presents the Swisher-Richards ways of mending, fishing nymphs, casting the dry fly to rising fish, the roll cast, the reach cast, how to evaluate new fly fishing equipment and tying techniques and materials - all designed to help you fish better and with greater rewards.
