Book-Backcountry Fly Fishing, by Swisher and Richards. The 'backcountry' has long been admired by serious fishermen who want a change of pace from crowded trout streams but who love the contained areas of coastal rivers, lakes, estuaries, and canals. Some of our largest and most revered sportfish - tarpon and snook - and other great backcountry fish such as bonefish, seatrout, permit, and redfish often include these areas in their migrations. Backcountry Fly Fishing in Salt Water is the first full-length treatment of the fantastic possibilities that this rich fishery provides. Learn about the basics of backcountry fly fishing (what it is, where to find it, how to find it); tides and their seminal importance; the habits of the major backcountry game fish; the forage foods they prefer; how best to imitate the forage foods; tackle and other tools of the trade; presentation; angling opportunities; and more. Hardcover edition. 7 X 9 inch format, 208 pages, color photos, b&w photos, maps, illustrations, diagrams, charts.
