Books: Getting Started in Fly Fishing

April 3, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“The lesson to learn is that you need to let the fish take the fly – actually close his mouth around it. At the same time, however, you do need to set the hook quickly … Setting the hook, then, is a dicey thing. A bit early, and you pull the artificial away from the fish. A bit too late, and the fish spits it out.” Dennis Jensen give a thumbs up to Tom Fuller’s Getting Started in Fly Fishing. In the Vermont Times Argus.
