Summary

Summary

This is a book that recognises that it is the techniques, species or sites alone that attract millions to the sport, but a combination of all three that adds to the sport's complexity and appeal. The authors present the best lies and techniques for catching striped bass, bonito, bluefish, weakfish, false albacore, permit, bonefish, tarpon, snook and redfish. Adding further to the book's appeal, these prized species are sought in the nine best inshore fishing locations along the Atlantic coast. From the Kennebec River in Maine to Key West, Florida, readers will learn what water conditions are most favourable and which flies to present to each fish.
