Orvis From Lure to Fly
Fly Fishing for Spinning and Baitcast Anglers
For any fisher who wonders: "What's this fly fishing thing all about?" What makes this book different from other entry-level fishing books is that at each and every juncture, it empowers anglers to translate and transfer their pre-existing knowledge bases and skill-sets, rather than asking them to learn a new sport from scratch. The book progresses species-by-species as it introduces and reinforces core fly fishing concepts, all while using, whenever possible, analogs from the conventional fishing world. Each chapter will give anglers ideas for using their new skills on waters they already fish in pursuit of species they already understand. Readers will not only learn how to perform a number of different actions with a fly rod, they will gain a perspective on what different fly fishing opportunities are available to them as they progress through the sport. Whatever their preference - trout, bass, muskies, or more - this book is their gateway.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"I keep forgetting to write to tell you how much I enjoyed your piece on Poland. You are one of the few fishing writers I read these days (I do skim most of them but always read yours). Really nice work in the vein of John McPhee."-- Tom Rosenbauer, Marketing Director, The Orvis Company "You are a freaking writing god!"-- Paris Fleezanis, Editor, This Is Fly "Dave, your Poland story was superb. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had run in The Drake."-- Tom Bie, Editor, The Drake "I went through the story again and I have to say it's really [expletive deleted] good... You're a gem for me because, as I've said, you are one of my best writers. But your writing probably doesn't end with Fly Rod & Reel or any of the fly trade-specific mags. You are a Garden & Gun, Outside type of guy."-- Greg Thomas, Editor, Fly Rod & Reel "I'm contacting you because I'm a fan of your work. I was wondering if you might be interested in writing for Outdoor Life?"-- Gerry Bethe, Deputy Editor, Outdoor Life
