From the cover: “In this book the author dispels the mystique of fly fishing with straightforward, lucid descriptions of the fish, its environment, instincts, food and feeding habits. Only by fully understanding these basic facts can one consistently outwit the fish; and this outwitting is what the mystique is all about. Contains a wealth of new material particularly dealing with the progress on the development of modern fishing tackle.
