There has long been a divide between fly fishing and coarse fishing – but there is no reason for it! Over 3 million people in Britain fish one way or the other – and there is growing interest in combining these two major areas of the sport. Existing fly fishers looking for a fresh challenge are already exploring the fun and fresh possibilities of new species. Coarse anglers are discovering the advantages of catching their favourite species in this exciting and intimate way. The reasons are simple enough: virtually any fish will take a fly, you can see it ‘as it happens’ and the fight of a fish on a flyrod is nothing short of sensational. This book shows you how to fly fish for each different species: the techniques, the flies, the tackle. Flyfishing for Coarse Fish will appeal to: fly and coarse fishers wanting to try something new. Those wanting to introduce coarse fishing youngsters to the art of fly fishing, at a fraction of the cost. Those living in areas where fly fishing would not otherwise be available, or at such an affordable price.
