Top 7 Fly Fishing Books__________oOo__________dfh Recommended By Tim Gaunt-Baker


 1.

The Classic Guide to Fly-Fishing for Trout: The Fly-Fisher's Book of Quarry, Tackle, & Techniques - Charles Jardine (Hardcover)

5.0 out of 5 stars "A book you will be proud to own." 8 Aug 1997, review by a customer.

Charles Jardine and Peter Gathercole formed the perfect partnership when they put this book together. Peter's photography is in a league of it own, and totally breath taking. His skill is used extensively through out the whole book making it a joy to browse let alone read. The book however is not just a picture book. It is a mine or information, both historical and current, full of comprehensive descriptions and diagrams. Knowledge and experience are by far the most important factors that lead to success. Charles and Peter have both, and have probably put more trout on my table and any other single source.

Spey Casting - by Simon Gawesworth (Hardcover)

5.0 out of 5 stars"Spey Casting is a book that will influence not only casters, but also the way that  spey casting is taught."               -Ed Jaworowski - Fly Fisherman

No other cast is more graceful or more fun to learn than the spey cast.

Here he teaches the casts, including the switch cast, single spey, double spey, snap roll, snap - T and Devon switch cast. "Wheter you want to know what all the spey casting buzz is about or want to become really proficient at spey casting, you need this book." -Dana Sturn - Speypages.com

5.0 out of 5 starsMatching the Hatch: Stillwater, River and Stream - by Pat O'Reilly (Hardcover)

This superb book should help you catch more trout. It lists the 7 best flies and then adds a few more to make 12 to aid you at the river side. It helps you tie them if you wish, or directs you in what to buy and in what sizes to cover most of the hatch. Helps you identify the bugs being eaten and match them from your fly box. With good information and great pictures. Read this book carefully as a beginner and you will catch more fish!                                                     -Mr Clive Edwards'flyboxfan'
