Fly fishing in Colorado is huge. As one would expect, there are no shortage of fly fishing guides. But whereas other guides focus on particular waters, Colorado Home Bases, Fishing Places is organized by region, centering on locations out of which fly fishers can "home base." In other words, this book is organized the same way that people organize their fly fishing trips.
"I want, through this written record, to articulate what a rich blessing it is to be a fisherman. And I sense that there may somewhere be a mystery that has yet to be uncovered: a great and hidden truth lying at the heart of the angler's experience, a truth both simple and profound, the power and the importance of which are felt only by fishermen, because it is the irresistible summons of this shy and beautiful truth that takes hold of them, driving them to fish-filled waters in search of their happiness.' Laurence Catlow, July 2001Once a Flyfisher is a sporting diary which follows the events of a season on the beautiful rivers of Yorkshire, Cumbria, Shropshire and Scotland.As he fishes through the summer months, the author's views unfold: forthright, at times extremely funny, unexpectedly moving and always thought-provoking."

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.
In this remarkably in-depth book, you will share the secrets of the experts - information on their favourite flies, how they tie them and how they fish them.
This title is divided into six sections dealing with rainbow trout, large and smallmouth yellows, bass, shad and kingfish.
Each species is dealt with by three or four of our leading fly fishers (19 in total) who have picked up to six of their favourite flies, explained how and why they fish them, and then described each fly in detail with the support of excellent colour photography.

He has been fly fishing for thirty-seven years in both fresh and salt water, at home and abroad.

There are rigs and leader recipes suitable for most fly-fishing scenarios, all of which are laid out in an easy-to-follow format. The book is a must for any person taking up fly fishing or for the fly angler who wants or needs to expand his repertoire of knots or rigs whether on fresh or salt water.
