Fly fishing has grown in popularity for both men and women faster than any other type of angling. Its allure comes from the excitement of catching a fish on feathers and floss. Traversing harsh landscapes from mountain ranges to vast open oceans. The pure adrenaline rush when hooking the fish of a lifetime. With David Agness’ new book, Fishing Adventures on the Fly Techniques and Tactics: With Dave and Lindsay Agness, the reader can experience that thrill first hand.

“We have traveled to far off remote places to chase world class fresh and saltwater fish and in this book of essays I’m bringing the reader along for the adventure,” said David. “[I want to] get them on the boats, in the float planes or in the rivers fishing … reliving the battles with some of the great game fish of the world on a fly rod.”

The book is part fishing memoir, part how-to. Readers will immerse themselves in the relived experience while learning the Authors tried and true techniques on catching Salmon, Steelhead, and giant Brown trout on a fly.
