The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing Product Review

The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing provides an absolute wealth of knowledge. This book, written by Kirk Deeter and Charlie Meyers includes tips, nuances, cheats, and wisdom that is relatable to every fly fisherman.

It’s undeniable that after reading this book, you’ll feel like you could catch two or three times the number of fish than usual.

The book is organized into five sections covering casting, presentation, reading water and rigging flies. The fifth section is a general overview. Each chapter contains some of the book’s 250 tips that are written in a direct yet conversational style. Each tip is written by either Charlie or Kirk and provides a unique perspective and point of view on each subject.

If you’ve never been fly fishing before, you may struggle with The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing. You will need some context to understand the tips and tricks contained in the book. It’s important to get out on the water, make a few mistakes and learn some hard-knock lessons before you take tips from Deeter and Meyers.

However, this book is highly recommendable to anybody who’s on there way to becoming experienced fly angler.
