The majoriity of America's freshwater anglers fish for bass with spinning or casting rods and some kind of hardware, such as plugs, spinnerbaits or plastic worms. The author of this book proposes that, in many situations, the best way to take bass is with the fly rod. Despite fly fishing's reputation as an expensive, elitist sport, taking bass on the fly can be the least expensive way to go. An adequate rod, reel, line and flies can be bought for less than the cost of a summer's supply of spinning or casting lures. The simplified techniques can teach the reader to catch fish in just a few hours.
