Description

With decades of fly-fishing experience, Ed Quigley is the perfect candidate to provide fly-fishing know-how to prospective flyfishers.

For those new to fly fishing as well as for experienced anglers looking to add some “secrets” to their own bags of tricks, Fly-Fishing Advice from an Old-Timer will illuminate the fly-fishing world. Richly illustrated and clearly written, Quigley includes down-to-earth explanations of the basics, detailed discussions of advanced topics, and ingenious tips and compelling anecdotes from his own years of experience fly fishing streams from Labrador to Costa Rica and beyond. Readers will discover:

When to use emergers, caddis flies, midges, and cripples
How to create flies literally “on the fly” right on the stream
How to choose the best rods, reels, lines, waders, and leaders
The real secret to playing a fish
The lowdown on winter fishing
And much more!

Along with his own personal advice, Quigley provides answers on where to find more information on each topic: websites, articles, DVDs, and books. His must-read list of fly-fishing books with his own comments on the most useful information in each ties together one of the most comprehensive fly-fishing books ever written.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
