The Fly Fisher - new book published

Beginning of this year I was working on illustrations to show you how to do fly fishing right. Now "The Fly Fisher - The Essence and Essentials of Fly Fishing" is in stores.
The perfect balance for those searching for a bit of peace and quiet and an outdoor activity: fly fishing combines connecting with nature, the defining of personal aesthetics, and physical activity. The Fly Fisher shows the most beautiful fishing spots, self-tied flies, and the right equipment for this increasingly popular lark of leisure.
