Tom Wendelburg lives to fish. A prolific outdoor writer and photographer, a respected and innovative flytier, a keen observer of fish habitat and behavior, a versatile and passionate fishermanï¿½Wendelburg is all of these. He is one of the most-published writers on fishing, with bylines in such magazines as Fly Fisherman, but this is his first book.
Catching Big Fish on Light Fly Tackle is a book to be savored and re-read, for it distills decades of fly-fishing knowledge. It includes Wendelburg’s philosophy of using light tackle, his insights on surface and underwater tactics, discussions of his favorite fish (trout, bass, bluegills, salmon, and steelhead) and of his favorite flies, including much-admired fly patterns that he developed (Wendelburg’s Hare’s Ear Scud and his no-hackle hairwing dry fly). Wendelburg is a consummate fisherman and a first-rate teacher, and his enthusiasm is infectious.
