"Cast further, more accurately, tame tailing loops, cast under branches, and much more". Good solid fly-casting instruction from most certainly one of the best casters and teachers anywhere in the world. "How to improve your distance and accuracy and make casts in any situation". "The fly-casting instruction in this book derives from almost a half century of fishing and teaching, and no matter where you are in your fly-fishing life, from struggling beginner to the person with two rods in every weight, this book can help you do better. Lefty begins with the fundamentals common to all good casts and then goes on to diagnose and demonstrate ways to eliminate a variety of casting problems, including how to tame tailing loops; cast in the wind; quickly and accurately change the direction of a cast; throw a backcast that stays clear of brush; quickly send wet flies and streamers deep with a tuck cast; skip a fly across the water to reach under low-hanging branches; make roll casts, effective mends and much more. No matter how good fly-fishing tackle becomes, how well you deal with the variables on the water will always be a big factor in your fishing success. For as long as you fly-fish, this book will hold the keys".
