The Executive’s Guide to Fly Fishing is a concise and easy to read book for anyone who wants to begin fly fishing or has had trouble sticking with it. It’s a practical, no-nonsense instruction with hilarious anecdotes that keeps fly fishing as simple as it can be.
For example, there is no shortage of knowledgeable, well meaning people who offer their advice and guidance, oftentimes resulting in “information overload.” The student must learn to listen to their advice, smile, thank them, and then ignore whatever they said.
In fact, there are only 3 basic objectives to successful fly fishing:
1. Get the fly in front of the fish.
2. Make the fly look like something to eat.
3. Deal with the setbacks as they occur.
For anyone with a sense of humor and an interest in fly fishing, this book is a must.
