The Salmon & Trout Association – Surrey Branch – launches its “Flyfishing for Trout and Grayling – an introductory handbook”
The Salmon & Trout Association – Surrey Branch – launches its “Flyfishing for Trout and Grayling –
an introductory handbook”. Written and designed by angling experts Sue Parker (STANIC) and Pat O’Reilly
(APGAI), its aim is to help demystify and to assist the beginner (although anglers of many years experience
will also find this extremely useful!).
It covers all essential topics from Safety to Permits, from Flies and Basic Angling Entomology to Knots
and Casting. The text is written in a chatty and informative style that takes the reader right to the
heart of the matter in a few, well-chosen sentences. It is lavishly illustrated with colour photography
and illustrations – all contained in a 32-page, A5 size booklet which makes it ideal for reference.
Comments Paul Knight, S&TA Director, “Too often would-be anglers are dissuaded from taking up this sport
because they simply don’t know where or how to start. Sue and Pat have done a wonderful job in guiding
them through the key issues they need to recognise as well as giving them practical, easy-to-follow pointers
to help get that fly land on the water.”
“Flyfishing for Trout and Grayling – an introductory booklet” by Sue Parker and Pat O’Reilly,
£4.00 inc p & p is available from Mr Bob Meier, Surrey Branch secretary on 01372 457407,
or through the S&TA website.
