The classic book from a revered artist and fly-tying master. An internationally renowned artist, John Atherton (1900–1952) was also a legend in the world of fly fishing. This lost classic, originally published in 1961, combines his evocative memoirs of Vermont fishing expeditions with practical directions for fly-tying. Atherton’s reminiscences and instructions are complemented by his exquisite sketches of tools and scenes from the angler’s life. The author’s wife, artist Maxine Atherton, notes in her introduction that in addition to his skills as an accomplished artist and fine sportsman John Atherton was a romantic realist, whose exuberant outbursts of wonder over natural phenomena celebrated our planet’s everyday magic. Indeed, Atherton’s work was featured in the Museum of Modern Art’s 1943 exhibition of American Realists and Magic Realists. On a more practical note, Maxine Atherton adds that the Impressionistic fly patterns such as those featured in this book have worked wonders for her fishing, fooling trout in rivers throughout North America and Europe. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

I first joined the fishing tackle industry as a fishing rod engineer for Shimano, this was later followed by the role of Product Manager for the fishing division. I have since moved on in my career; but as all fishermen know, you can never quite be really that far from what's true to your heart; hence my writing of this book. In short, the book introduces the various fishing categories, walks you through the process of how a blank is made, explains blank terminology and quality as well as teaches you how to maximize the performance of your rod. Also thrown in are some of my personal fishing memoirs which I hope would be a good read for you when you are not out on the water.

Sir Ian Botham, best known as one of cricket's true greats, is also a fisherman of knowledge and passion. In this book he shares his love of the sea and the riverbank - from the hours of concentration casting for salmon or trout in quiet pools with only his Jack Russell for company, to the adrenalin surging moments when the arm-wrenching force of a 1,000lb Blue Marlin hits the line. As a cricket commentator he travels the world and at each stop he is able to slip away and try his hand at whatever local fishing delights are to be found. The result is a wide experience of fish and fishing from every corner of the globe. Packed with anecdotes and stories, this book also includes instructions and diagrams, compendia of equipment and bait, sections on Botham's favourite rivers and how to fish them, and guides to everything from the life cycle of a game fish to the particular intricacies of Spey casting. Threaded throughout are the author's own experiences, both in Britain and around the world, and the book is illustrated with many of his own personal photographs.
