Summary

Nothing is more important for successful fly fishing than how an angler presents the fly. In this comprehensive book, Lefty Kreh explains that presentation is much more than dropping the fly into the best position.

Booklist Review

Kreh, a veteran angler and outdoor writer, offers many tips on how to present a fly to a fish. And in doing so, he goes well beyond the usual suspects in writing on topics such as subdued clothing, quiet wading, and delicate fly leaders and explaining the obvious and subtle influences of tackle, technique, and fly patterns on effective presentation. Kreh's writing is friendly and credible. His advice is effective, reasoned, and covers many species. The book's format--first a description of presentation in all fishing functions (tackle, technique, flies, and approach) and then discussions of presentation for particular fish species--is long and causes a noticeable repetition in concepts and examples; however, this book offers a unique approach to an important angling subject by a skilled and well-regarded author. --John Rowen
