Fly Fishing Books: 1001 Fly Fishing Tips

We received a copy of Jay Nichols’s collection of expert fly fishing tips in the mail last week and were impressed by the amount of ground this handy little book covers. 1001 Fly Fishing Tips: Expert Advice, Hints and Shortcuts from the World’s Leading Fly Fishers (Headwater Books, January 2008, 209 pages) is exactly what it says it is: a compendium of top suggestions from many of the recognized masters of the sport. Gary Garth reviews the book in this morning’s Louisville, Kentucky Courier-Journal: “‘1001 Fly Fishing Tips’ is loaded with practical information, most of which is baseline. The text is simple and easy to understand. The book is divided into four parts: Technique and Presentation; Equipment; Hatches and Seasons; and Travel Destinations and Species other than Trout. It’s nicely illustrated with 200 line drawings.”

  • use these 3 fishing tips too.1. Fish face upstream. If you are behind them, you can catch them directly in front of you.2. If you can see to the bottom of the creek, they can see you! Approaching a creek or stream from the bank often spooks fish.3. It is much easier to cast to a pocket, pool or small riffle from the center of a stream and maintain a slow retrieve. Best of all you are in an ideal position to cast effectively towards either bank.
