Bass fishing (largemouth, primarily) is growing in popularity around the country; it is growing really fast in western states such as Colorado, Idaho, and Nebraska due to the accessibility (public water nearby), crowding of trout streams, and new cadre of anglers that prefer alternatives to trout. Jay Zimmerman features 18 cutting-edge patterns from around the country for largemouth and smallmouth bass, explains how to fish them, and has detailed tying steps. Because of how widespread bass (largemouth, smallmouth, spotted) are, this book should appeal to anglers around the country.

Learn tips and tricks for all new flies sure to catch carp! Carp are one of the most widely distributed and abundant fish in North America. Their prodigious size and habit of finning in shallow water make them appear to be easy fly-fishing targets. In reality, most anglers quickly discover that they are extremely difficult to hook on a fly. It takes years to discover how to catch them consistently. The reason? Carp can be very selective about what flies they will take. This book will help to short-circuit that learning curve. Carp's selectivity can be boiled down to diet. Understanding what they are eating allows the angler to choose and tie a fly that will produce. The Orvis Beginner’s Guide to Carp Flies walks the flyfisherman through the steps of identifying the most likely food source, illustrating the best patterns that imitate that food, and discussing how to effectively present those flies. With detailed information on tying all of the important carp flies, this book eliminates months of trial and error in your fly selection. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

In Fly-Fishing for Smallmouth, Bob Clouser shares the extensive knowledge he has developed over a quarter-century of guiding for smallmouth bass on the Susquehanna River. Beyond his native waters, the lessons Bob offers in this book can be directly applied to smallmouth fisheries across the country, from creeks to large rivers. An experienced teacher, Bob anticipates the questions and challenges faced by anglers when they first encounter a smallmouth stream. He explains the natural history of smallmouth--their range, spawning behavior, feeding habits, and seasonal movement patterns--and then introduces the specific flies and techniques he uses when fly-fishing for bass. In sections on casting and presentations, he discusses intermediate to advanced methods of casting with weighted flies and lines as well as various surface and subsurface tactics, with dramatic color photos of the author demonstrating how it's done. Bob has designed a series of flies especially for smallmouth, and he reveals recipes and fishing tips for these flies and the other bass patterns he regularly uses and carries in his fly box. In the book's final chapter, he invites his friends to write about their favorite local bass streams across North America. These well-known anglers, among them Lefty Kreh, John Randolph and Mike O'Brien, offer intimate details on the greatest bass waters from California to Ontario. AUTHOR: Bob Clouser is also the author of Clouser's Flies (0-8117-0148-4), which contains complete instructions for tying his renowned patterns. He and his wife, Joan, own and operate Clouser's Fly Shop near their home in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Contributing photographer Jay Nichols fishes for smallmouth bass on the Susquehanna River and its many tributaries. He lives in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Donna, and daughter, Amelia. REVIEWS: "In addition to being the inventor of the world-famous Clouser Deep Minnow, Bob Clouser is a master of smallmouth bass fly fishing. This book, long overdue, reveals the bass-fishing secrets that have helped earn Bob his reputation." ---John Randolph, editor of Fly Fisherman magazine

An Advanced Course in Fly Fishing The mission of The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing was to demystify and un-complicate the tricks and tips that make a great trout fisher. There are no complicated physics lessons in that book. Rather, The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing offered a simple, digestible primer on the basic elements of fly fishing: the cast, presentation, reading water, and selecting flies. In this, The Little Black Book of Fly Fishing, authors Kirk Deeter and Chris Hunt take you to the next level, building upon what Deeter and Charlie Meyers did in The Little Red Book. The Little Black Book will helps fly fishers build upon what they learned in the Little Red Book. Read this valuable, thought-provoking guidebook, and you'll be at the point where you'll be catching fish when no one else is, and you'll know exactly why you are. Advanced casting, presentation, reading the water, fly selection, and much more, including proper gear selection, are all covered. The table of contents, below, explains it all. The Little Black Book of Fly Fishing Acknowledgments Foreword Introduction Part 1: CASTING A double-haul is really important, and not just in the salt Teaching someone new? Start with Tenkara Everybody needs a casting lesson. Everybody. Casting longer leaders ‘Casting’ nymphs under indicators Get a practice rod How to cast a 15-foot leader (and why you should) Casting at taillights The cast killer Your casting stroke follow joints by size Challenge your cast Great casts are the ones that get bit Score your casts like golf strokes; fewer is better The sand-save cast A reach cast is worth a thousand mends Five feet short on purpose (the linear false cast) Be Lefty in the salt, and Rajeff in the fresh Give yourself a “D” Beating wind Don’t out-kick your coverage Part 2: PRESENTATION Fast strip for saltwater predators A swirl, not a rise Casting streamers upstream Carp: Not just for city kids Step out of your comfort zone What are the birds after? The potato chip fakeout Why natives matter But I still love brown trout best Micro-drag: where you stand matters You’ll never beat a fish into submission Take it to the lake Float tubes and garbage cans Food never attacks fish A case for the dry-fly snob Go Deep in the name of fish research Roll fish for fun They’re in skinny water for a reason The cafeteria line The escape hatch Part 3: READING WATER (AND FISH) The stripset Covering water Skate and twitch big flies in low light Rod tip down for streamers Weight an unweighted fly with fly-tying beads instead of split-shot Urban angling Get in shape. Stay in shape. Dry your fly first, apply floatant second Most fish (and some bugs) face upstream—present accordingly Head up, game over Step when you streamer Babysit your flies ID the “player” and get after it Gin clear water Flat calm water Developing “TSP” (trout sensory perception) A fish doesn’t see like humans do Walk on The 10 second rule Like a dog on a leash Tip up or tip down? The keys to spotting fish The full-court press usually fails Use the whole spice cabinet River personalities and handshakes What the cloud layers tell you Knowing what they are not doing is equally important as knowing what they are Upwelling v. the straight seam The speed of the strike is proportionate to the depth of the water (in rivers) See this, do that Part 4: FLIES UV resin in home-tied flies Nymphs on the swing Multi-purpose flies Sparse for saltwater UV parachute posts Tip the fly for tying parachute posts Caddis: the most dishonest fly ever Wire or tinsel for dry flies The “pellet fly” you can feel good about Practice, practice, practice Peacock herl … and why it works The mystery of the Purple Prince Nymph Profile is everything The Adams family Lethal mice The Mole Fly miracle Bob Behnke on colors Terrestrials are opportunity bugs The end of the duck Colors change with depth Un-matching the hatch The monkey poo fly Part 5: MISC. (Everything from gear, to fighting fish and angler ethics) Fly reels for trout are just line holders Fly reels matter for saltwater fish Faster rods aren’t always better You get what you pay for Pride cometh before the fall Sheet-metal screws Wire for predators Quick-dry attire for the flats ABC. Anything But Cotton Snip your tippet at an angle Rod weight depends on fly types The best loop knot… perfection 7X tippet is BS Colors and camo above the surface Guitars and fly rods Bucket list places Tiger snakes and long hemostats It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n roll Score fishing like cricket It’s okay to fail I cheer for the fish
