When you guys mention the Orvis guide... are you referring to "The Orvis Guide to Beginning Fly Fishing" or "The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide". I'm looking at picking up a good book for myself but just wanted to be clear on which one was being referred to.

Thanks.

brobar, The Orvis Flyfihing Guide is the book I like. It does well with the basics but then takes you well beyond that for reference on certain techniques later as you improve. It has been updated since I had it.
Here's a taste of what is covered...
