The Dry Fly

The Dry Fly

Postby tsegelke » Mon Apr 22, 2013 10:24 pm

Has anyone read any of Gary LaFontaines The Dry Fly?

I have been going through it, and it has a lot of good insights into how or why fish take a fly. It even has a lot of good information for movement and other techniques for fly manipulation. It is a very interesting read.

That, or his book on high mountain lakes are probably my favorite. Every time I read one of his books it makes me want to take up scuba diving. It's funny, he was so known for his analysis and multitude of fly patterns but in "Wisdom of the Guides" he says all of that study was so that he could go out with that one perfect fly and be successful. A very different take on the idea of one fly from how a lot of us look at it, but still very interesting. I miss his contributions to angling literature.
