This “new” 2017 released publication is an essential guide for both beginner or experienced fly angler. Interested beginner fly anglers will find basic information on locating/catching fish, from powerful stripers to the speedy, illusive false albacore, plus associated equipment for catching saltwater species. In contrast, advanced anglers will recognize new strategies/techniques for increasing their catch ratios.

All of the information presented in this book is based on the author’s 50 + years of experiences in active saltwater fly fishing; this involves his activities from Massachusetts to Florida. Don’s activities range from the Atlantic Coast surf lines to vast inshore waters.

The text is written with a strong slant toward concise, and easy absorption of information, making it an effective teaching tool. Furthermore, the book’s data is enhanced with two color fly plates, and related recipes. Sketches, charts, and photos with useful tips, plus several educational fishing experiences compliment the text. Additionally, this 76 page, 8 1/2” x 11” (with protective covers) book uses an easy to read popular format/font; also a comb style binding allows any page to conveniently lie flat for viewing.

The author’s love for the sport, and vast experience make him an informative teacher who always enjoys sharing his expertise. After publishing his three previous books, the author has now determined the need for a comprehensive,  “new” 2017 book on this ever growing, progressing sport.
