Dominic Garnett discusses extending flyfishing methods to the coarse species, with plenty of material on suitable flies, tackle and techniques. "Virtually any fish will take a fly, you can see it as it happens and the fight of a fish on a flyrod is nothing short of sensational." Chapters include: Tackle; Flies and flylife; Pike; Zander; Chub; Carp; Rudd; Roach; Dace; Bream; Tench; Barbel; Other species; Handy tips; Really useful patterns. The Really Useful Patterns chapter contains twenty pages of patterns and tying instructions for a number of flies that the author has found to be successful. Articulate, useful, sold really well and all together a very good read.
