New Fly Fishing Books from Kreh, Barr, and Meck

At the end of last week three new fly fishing books landed in our office: a new book on knots by Lefty Kreh, John Barr’s book on his flies and how to fish them, and Charles Meck’s Fishing Tandem Flies (Headwater Books, September 10, 2007, 128 pages). Since they are all important books, we’ll talk a little about each this week, starting with Meck’s handy little manual on droppers, which qualifies as a must-read for any serious trout angler. Meck covers all the combinations: one dry and one wet, one dry and two wets, two dries, two wets, three wets, etc. and talks connections, casting and delivery for a variety of conditions. There is a surprising amount of info in these 128 pages, much of it based on Meck’s considerable practical experience. In short, if you’ve been looking for an excuse to learn about fishing multi-fly rigs, this is a great place to start.
