Backpack Fly Fishing: A Back-to-Basics Approach
Daniel E Steere
Paperback: 208 pages 2016 8.2 x 5.4 x 0.7 inches
Simplify! A simpler approach, simpler fishing trip, and simpler fly-fishing mindset.
Increasingly, the trend in fly fishing has been toward greater specialization (trout vs. bass, freshwater vs. saltwater, lightweight vs. heavier weight rods and reels) and complexity.
This trend has taken many anglers away from what they loved best about fly-fishing: catching a wide variety of fish with simple, minimalist equipment that can fit into a daypack. Backpack Fly Fishing helps readers to understand why we need to get back to a simpler approach and how to enjoy doing it. Daniel E. Steere provides a comprehensive philosophy for this back-to-basics approach to fishing.
He includes chapters on equipment selection, fish that can be caught using this equipment and how to catch them, how to approach different types of waters, and important flies and how to tie them.
Additional chapters address how backpack fly-fishing fits into the context of other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and birding. Buy Online
