SPIRAL BOUND BOOKS-Not only are they my complete fly patterns for fresh & saltwater and the Bullethead Darter, but the fresh & saltwater books contain a array of fly tying tips and techniques from my over fifty year at the bench. These tips will not only help you to produce a durable fly, but do it in a time saving manner. The tips alone could be published as a mini-booklet.
“Shallow Water Tips & Techniques, Rigging for Success” I will share time-tested techniques for both the fly fisherman and spin/casting fisherman. This work is the result of spending thousands of days fishing shallow water in both salt and ponds & lakes. I will share tackle, flies, jigs, watercrafts and much more for fresh and saltwater panfish, bass, chain pickerel, snakeheads and stripers in the “skinny water.” It is 142 pages filled with tips and observations to help you succeed in the thin water. What is shallow water? I’ll share with you what is shallow water and why. I have included a two page color insert of flies and flukes
Several reasons prompted the writing of this book. The first was the countless times fly fishermen use to come into my shop commenting that they would like to try bonefishing. They were reluctant for many reasons; they didn’t have the confidence or technique to throw the longer line needed to be successful catching these fish.
ONE OF MY NECESSITY BONEFISH FLY IS INCLUDED WITH THE BOOK.
Don’t believe those articles out there that try to make you think they are something more than that. As the title suggests, I have a practical approach to my fishing and bonefishing is just another fish species we must understand and apply sound techniques to be successful. I’ll try to illustrate the process along the way and unravel some bonefish myths.
Having fished for over seven decades with my dad and my buddies we have accumulated many stories of fishing success as well as failures, some were funny situations that we still all have a laugh and chuckle about telling them on ourselves and fishing partners. No one is sacred!!! Even us old guys.
