Rated 5 out of 5 by MacT Bean's fly casting handbook
This is and excellent reference. I bought it to refresh some old skills and relearn some things I had forgotten. It was better than other books like this that I have read in the past. Illustrations were clear and wording was concise and informative. It is exactly what I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Textronics Fly Casting Handbook
Well and clearly written for a novice like me. Well chosen illustrations and pictures made learning the basics seem straight forward and not mysterious. Some of the material is getting a bit dated, but this book does the job of covering the basics of classic casting techniques.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoatmanTom LL Bean Fly Casting Handbook
A decision to take up fly fishing after 60 years led me to purchase this book, knowing I was not an expert. The exercises and practice sessions outlined are outstanding! I'm casting better and maybe mmore importanly easier than I recall doing in my youth. A must for a beginner and a good answer for someone looking to improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saltwaterflyfisher A great book to improve your casting!!
This book is a great read and well worth the investment for anyone who want to improve their casting skills. It is a concise well written and packed with practical casting tips. Don?t let the rather thin size of the book fool you, every paragraph has a point it wishes to drive home. I highly recommend that you re-reading it after you have had a chance to practice your casting and I guarantee that you will find many interesting casting tips that you overlooked the first time.
