Drag-Free Drift: Leader Design and Presentation Techniques for Fly Fishing

Design, materials, knots, castingIncludes LeaderCalc CD with tables for every variation of leader

Fly fishermen often pay too little attention to the eight or nine feet of monafilament that connects their hundred dollars of gear to their fly. But this least expensive component-the leader-is the one most directly connected to fishing success. To fool a trout, a leader must drop a fly lightly on the water and then let it drift naturally, without drag. This groundbreaking work reveals the principles behind leaders that catch fish and provides everything you need to start tying your own, including the ideal proportions of butt, taper, and tippet, the best materials and knots for various applications, and how leaders can be modified and adapted. It also covers techniques of casting to minimize drag and enhance presentation.

Long Distance Fly, Spin, Bait, and Surf Casting Techniques and Getting Started with Spey Casting

With so many articles and books about casting why did I write this short book? Part of the answer is that I never set to out to write a book or even an article. Instead, I set out to become a better fly, surf, spin and spey caster. To do so, I always took my first step by studying casting technique. Why did I do this? Because relatively late in life I came to believe in the power of technique; so when I became interested in fly casting, for example, I immersed myself in articles, books and videos, but surprisingly I still couldn't cast more than seventy-feet. Frustrated, I experimented with fly casting on my own, but with every casting discovery I made, a new casting symptom, like hitting myself with the fly, came out of hiding.

More and more I wished I had a casting coach, but not having a coach forced me to experiment on my own, and to find and understand the causes of my casting defects. And while I did, I took notes, notes that soon became a sort of casting journal, and then became articles that were published in many magazines. Does my journal answer every casting question? No. Does it describe the only ways to cast? No. But even though I believe all casters are different and should learn from many sources, I also believe this book will help you cast farther with less effort.
