Introduction to Fly Fishing for Trout is a witty, easy-to-ready, "how-to" primer on fly fishing for that species we love most -- TROUT. We've been fishing for a long time. And, we'd been teachers for much of our adult lives. We figured, why not put the two skills together and put out the coolest how-to fly fishing book ever

We believed most fishing how-to's were just okay, but every one seemed either bogged down in minutia and repetition, or lacked in one or more areas and just didn't feel complete. 

Our strategy is unique: we teach you a simple, one-handed cast a newbie can manage, get you reading water and catching fish on day one, and once you're hooked, you keep reading and keep learning the skills you need at your own pace. 

With full-color sequence photos on technique, lists of suggested quality gear, and logically broken-down chapters and tactics so you progress through the sport at your own speed, Introduction to Fly Fishing for Trout is the funniest, most comprehensive and visually-striking fly fishing how-to on the market. 

Example of what you'll find inside!
