Fly Fishing: A Trailside Guide

Fly Fishing: A Trailside Guide

Flyfishing is complicated. A good beginner's book is essential, so I suggest you try one of my own: Fly Fishing: A Trailside Guide by John Merwin (192 pp.; 1996. Illustrated. Published by W.W. Norton, Dept. FS, 500 Fifth Ave., New York, NY 10110. Softcover, $17.95). [BRACKET "Yes, he's promoting his own book, which he wouldn't ordinarily do, but somebody had to write this article and all the other candidates were book authors, too. Besides, it's a great book.-Ed."]
