One of the best acid tests of an introductory book, is that the text allows the reader to learn an important skill independent of the illustrations. Fly casting is very difficult to teach in person, and even more so in print, yet this book contains the best, the most interesting, and the most effective introduction of fly casting I have ever read. I think Terry puts the emphasis in the right places; he doesn't neglect entomology, but he devotes twice as many words to trout behavior, a far more interesting and useful pastime if you must introduce a scientific bent into your fishing.
There is a wilderness river in the Pacific Northwest that starts in the highest glaciers and flows through tall, uncut timber. The headwaters are rough and tumble with huge boulders with miles of non-stop whitewater. Over five years ago this fly fishing video was featured in Catch Magazine. We explored and fished the middle and lower river where serene, aqua blue pools and riffles held two species of spawning salmon and rainbow and cutthroat trout that were eager to take our dry flies. Access to the river is accomplished by hiking through the mountains, or a 55 mile boat ride, or by using the primitive grass airstrip. There is one guide who works here. His name is John Wilsey. John was very helpful with our logistics and angling success. John can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was the first few years of aerial video for me so it’s very exciting to see how much the quality of the footage has changed since then.
The Seychelles are an angler’s paradise – if you can actually get to them. Follow the crew of the Alphonse Fishing Co. as they wade the flats of the Cosmoledo Atoll, hoping for a shot at Giant Trevally.
This YETI Presents video is about fly fishing in the Seychelles’ Cosmoledo Atoll; the GT fishing capital of the world. This chain of remote islands sits about as far into the middle of nowhere as you can get. But once you arrive, the fishing is on.
