This ample selection of articles and essays by one of America's
most popular writers about fly-fishing begins with a moment on
Michigan's Au Sable River--the exact moment when the author lost
his heart to fly-fishing. This collection chronicles a fishing life
punctuated by a revealing trip with one of his grown sons and
mellow reflections from a hospital bed.
The book prepares fly fishermen to increase their probability of fishing success on any given day of the year in the Rockies. It provides details on the identification of the fish, understanding their feeding habits, types and conditions of water in any season. The reader will be armed with an understanding of the types and availability of the various major hatches and their metamorphosis. The book includes information on terrestrials, preferred temperatures, spawning patterns and recommended flies for each season or hatch for both subsurface and surface fishing. A removable field guide is provided for insect identification and suggested flies. Special treatment is also given to diverse subjects such as night fishing, nymphing, "catch and release" procedures, and Northern Pike and Kokanee Salmon fishing.
The Better Half of Flyfishing is not an expert "how-to" book, but rather a collection of helpful hints for the beginner. The author relates humorous stories about the many faces of flyfishing gleaned from the her female perspective, both as a novice to the sport and a pragmatist to life. This refreshing look at traditions, dogma and folklore will entertain all audiences. Women are often enticed into to the sport by their "better half" male counterpart. But flyfishing also embodies a "better half," a side beyond the catch, one that is exhilarating in its human and spiritual depth. The angler is often on a journey in a sport that parallels life's curious path. The flyfishing allegory symbolizes the "better half" within each of us that often needs luring to be revealed.
Revolving around her own quest to learn to fly fish on the Lower Laguna Madre of deep south Texas, Kathy Sparrow weaves ageless principles of women's psychology and yoga with a fresh, distinctly feminine approach to fly fishing. Kathy takes the reader from her early life on the bank with her father and grandfathers to her current status as a licensed Coast Guard captain, a fly fishing guide and lodge owner, and the holder of a women's world record speckled trout. Throughout she offers precious technical advice gleaned from male and female anglers alike. From the rods to use, the lines, land the flies, she covers a broad range of information including tips on how to see fish, read the water, and how to become a stealthy wader so you can stalk fish with finesse.
