"[Stroupís] seven common-sense principles along with the illustrations by Dave Hall take a lot of the frustrating guesswork out of what many consider a difficult sport. . . . Reading the book is like having a guide accompany you on every trip to a stream, and it should be a valuable addition to your fly-fishing library."
-Charles Meck, from the foreword
- Practical fly-fishing tips from a guide who knows how to teach
- 7 simple, easy-to-understand lessons on often-overlooked fundamentals: drift, reading water, position of angler and rod, casting, line control, mending
- Chapters on dry-fly fishing, nymphing, best rigs, and guide flies
