Two highly respected outdoor journalists, Kirk Deeter of Field & 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.
