Tips for simplifying fly-fishing trips to fish more often and in more locations.Increasingly, the trend in fly fishing has been toward greater specialization (trout vs. bass, freshwater vs. saltwater, lightweight vs. heavier weight rods and reels) and complexity. This trend has taken many anglers away from what they loved best about fly-fishing: catching a wide variety of fish with simple, minimalist equipment that can fit into a daypack. Backpack Fly Fishing helps readers to understand why we need to get back to a simpler approach and how to enjoy doing it.In Backpack Fly Fishing, Daniel E. Steere provides a comprehensive philosophy for this back-to-basics approach to fishing. He includes chapters on equipment selection, fish that can be caught using this equipment and how to catch them, how to approach different types of waters, and important flies and how to tie them. Additional chapters address how backpack fly-fishing fits into the context of other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and birding.Everyone can benefit from Steere’s helpful information, including current flyfishermen who want to try a less complicated, back-to-basics approach; spin and bait fishermen who want to try the sport of fly fishing without breaking the bank on fishing equipment; and hikers, campers, bicyclists, and other outdoors people who want to be able to fish in waters that they may happen upon during their journeys through the wilds.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
