Neil Jennings started getting serious about fly-fishing in 1973 and has fished that way exclusively ever since. From 1982 through 2003 he was a partner/owner in a retail fly-fishing shop in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. During that time, Neil was behind the counter, answering questions and giving advice and counsel to thousands of flyfishers, ranging from 'wannabes' to seriously talented anglers. Over the years, Neil learned a lot about fly-fishing, some of it by good example and some of it by bad. This book is a distillation of the best of that long experience.Most of what you'll find here is in the nature of tips, tricks, shortcuts and techniques. Whatever your experience level in the sport, there will be things here that you will find useful or that will stimulate thought, discussion or debate. One of the wonderful things about fly-fishing is that you have an opportunity to learn new things all the time and the curiosity quotient stays high.
