    Fly Fishing by Tom McNally
    Great read and instructions. An oldie but great one.

    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...
