"This book was conceived as a follow-up to Bill Stinson's Fly Rod Steelhead, and as such I don't address the basics of steelheading that he covers in his text. This book assumes that you can wade, cast, tie on flies, and are comfortable on the river. You've caught steelhead and are eager to catch more. You will. You will learn how to read water tailored to more challenging and rewarding methods than a simplistic chuck-it-and-chance-it approach. You will annex new strategies that incite steelhead to take your fly on top. You will see how the latest winter techniques work and how you can catch steelhead all year round. You will read about how fly design affects how the fly works in the water. You will learn how to match specific types of water with proven methods for catching steelhead. You will see how it's all pinned to the underlying theme for Advanced Fly Fishing for Steelhead - proper presentation of the fly is the cornerstone for success. Technique is the key". Chapters include: Steelhead fly design; Spey Flies go west; The classic wet fly; Greased line Steelhead; Dry fly Steelhead; Fly Plates; Stalking small streams; Shooting heads for Steelhead; Winter steelheading with a fly; Two-handed rods for Steelhead - in evolution; Nymphing system for Steelhead; Jim Teeny - breaking tradition; Steelheading survival kit; Conservation and steelheading in the 21st century; fly pattern list.
