New Fly Fishing Books: Basic Fly Fishing by Jon Rounds

Jon Rounds, formerly an editor at Stackpole Books, has come out with an introduction to fly fishing that does about a good a job at elucidating the basics as any book we’ve seen. The book is just very well written and illustrated. But Rounds made other good choices: an oversized format, a well-thought-out section on flies for various species at the end, and a unique binding that allows it to lie flat when open but that looks good on a bookshelf. The only possible quibble we had was with the recommendation of the improved clinch knot for beginners. Lefty Kreh was an advisor on the book’s details. Basic Fly Fishing: All the Skills and Gear You Need to Get Started is 120 pages and was published by Stackpole Books at the end of September.
