Summary

Two highly respected outdoor journalists, Kirk Deeter of Field and Stream and Charlie Meyers of the Denver Post, have cracked open their notebooks and shared straight-shot advice on the sport of fly fishing, based on a range of new and old experiences - from interviews with the late Lee Wulff to travels with maverick guides in Tierra del Fuego.

The mission of The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing is to demystify and un-complicate the tricks and tips that make a great trout fisher. There are no complicated physics lessons here. Rather, conceived in the “take dead aim” spirit of Harvey Penick’s classic instructional on golf, The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing offers a simple, digestible primer on the basic elements of fly fishing: the cast, presentation, reading water, and selecting flies. 

In the end, this collection of 240 tips is one of the most insightful, plainly spoken, and entertaining works on this sport - one that will serve both novices and experts alike in helping them reflect and hone in their approaches to fly fishing. 

The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing is wonderfully narrated by Scott Pollak.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great book

I’m new to this sport but got hooked quickly. This book gave a lot of helpful information that someone as new as me could understand. The narrator was great. And I think I will purchase the actual book so I can take with me in areas where my phone and this app won’t work.
