About This Book

In this book, Gary Borger thoroughly discusses the how, when, where, and why to develop the ideal equipment selection strategy for your fishing. There’s a detailed discussion on the evolution and speciation of the fly line, fly fishing’s most unique and defining piece of equipment; precise definitions and carefully crafted descriptions of rod action, flexion profile, swing weight, and CCS determination; the ten characteristics of reels that must be considered; extensive notes on origins and construction of leaders, including the Uni-Body; an intimate look at essential knot tying parameters, and much more.

Throughout the book, the ‘how to’ is animated with stories that stretch back over nearly six decades of Gary’s fly-fishing life. Complimenting all of this is a collection of black and white photographs and diagrams, as well as additional illustrations by Jason Borger.
