The History of Fly Fishing in Fifty Flies

Discover the evolution of one of the world's oldest and most beautiful sports.

Fly fishing is an ancient sport. It dates back almost 2,000 years, which is about 1,950 years longer than frisbee golf. Learn more about the illustrious art of it in The History of Fly Fishing in Fifty Flies. Written by avid fisherman Ian Whitelaw, the book chooses fifty fly patterns that carefully represent the evolution of the sport relative to techniques, rods, lines, reels, and the flies themselves.

The origin of the sport is tracked and followed along the path that led fly fishing to the Americas and beyond. It's filled with sportsman profiles, tying tips, colorful photographs and illustrations, and techniques to make it an engaging book for the fly-fisher in your life, or someone looking to get into the sport.
