Lefty Kreh's Fly Fishing in Salt Water (Paperback)

By Lefty Kreh, Blane Chocklett (Foreword by)



Lefty Kreh's original edition of Fly Fishing in Salt Water pioneered a new territory for fly fishers. With over thirty thousand copies sold and the content fully updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition is the saltwater fly fisher's bible, based on firsthand experience by an acknowledged master. In clear, practical terms and with helpful photographs and line drawings, Lefty Kreh's Fly Fishing in Salt Water treats the techniques needed to catch all the major saltwater species--bonefish, tarpon, striped bass, bluefish, salmon, permit, snook, sharks, cobia, tuna, billfish, and more. The book shows how to fish from boats and how to wade the flats, and fully explains all the tackle needed and how to use it for specific jobs--the rods, the lines and leaders, and the flies (shown in full color). Lefty provides superb advice about how to make the long casts necessary for fishing the fly in salt water, how to "tease" sailfish and other large fish to within fly-casting range, how to chum, and how to tie the necessary knots for saltwater fishing. Chapter topics include Knots and Leaders, Flies, Tackle, Inshore Fly Fishing, and Boats.

Lefty Kreh was an internationally known and respected master in the field of fly fishing. He taught fly casting and fly-fishing techniques since the 1950s, and he fished in all fifty states, every province in Canada, and in Iceland and much of Europe, South America, and the South Pacific. Lefty was the author of Presenting the Fly, Fly Fishing in Salt Water, Saltwater Fly Patterns, Practical Fishing Knots, Solving Casting Problems, and 101 Fly-Fishing Tips. He lived in Maryland.
