The essence of the message in this book is simple. When an angler decides to pursue fly fishing, the advice of others should be sought. Others can help in the purchase of gear, rods, reels etc, or in the wise choice of flies or nymphs. Others can lead the novice up the river and point out feeding fish – in fact they can do everything up to that point. But from the moment a feeding fish is discovered until it is in the net, the angler is on their own. He must approach the fish himself, cast the fly, induce the take, effect a strike, fight the fish, net it and, we hope, release it.

There are books on tying flies, casting, construction of gear, where to go and so on, Repeating all that in this book would be of little value. The aim here has been to concentrate on just one aspect of angling -  that is the act of capture from the time a fish has been spotted.

Through this book the authors hope to assist anglers, novices in particular, to identify and solve some of their difficulties but also increase their sensitivity to the often under-estimated adversary, the trout.

About the Authors:
Les Hill: Over most weekends and during holidays Les explores the rivers of the South Island’s high country seeking trout with rod and camera. Les is also a well known angling author, having contributed to virtually all New Zealand outdoor magazines.
Graeme Marshall: Is a professional fishing guide, Graeme has an intimate knowledge of the back country rivers of Nelson and is an ardent campaigner for the preservation of this wonderful resource.

Key Points:
