Fly-Casting Finesse reveals expert John L. Fieldas secrets of fly-casting based on modern observation, Fieldas experience as an angler and casting teacher, and his collaboration with international members of casting clubs and schools. Whether the reader is a salt- or freshwater angler, Fly-Casting Finesse will help the caster increase accuracy and distance as well as hone presentation. It runs the gamut from one-hand spey techniques to dealing with wind on the flats. Although not a complete casting curriculum, the purpose of the book is to help anglers learn how to achieve more and know where to get assistance. Many of the skills at the highest levels of fly-casting require an educated sense of feeling in the rod hand that enables the caster to use finesse and seemingly minimal effort to manipulate the rod and line. The book will guide people down the path of acquiring that magical touch. According to Fieldas philosophy, readers should first learn all casting styles and techniques to adapt them for any species and location they encounter, and secondly, they should know the history and purpose of presentation, so they can be innovative in the future.
