Here is the first major book devoted exclusively to the exciting world of big-game fly fishing. Trey Combs has found the prime destinations (from Baja, California, to Australia) for seventeen different species, and each has its own chapter: dorado, Pacific sailfish, Atlantic sailfish, blue marlin, black marlin, striped marlin, white marlin, albacore, yellowfin tuna, bigeye tuna, blackfin tuna, kawakawa tuna, black skipjack, skipjack tuna, dogtooth tuna, wahoo, Pacific salmon, and inshore gamefish.
Combs provides a short history and fly-fishing strategies for each gamefish, as well as delightful anecdotes of his own fishing experiences. The book also includes important, up-to-the-minute chapters on tackle and teasing techniques, a major section on bluewater flies and poppers, and tying advice from such experts as Lefty Kreh, Bob Popovics, Rod Harrison, Winston Moore, Nick Curcione, Chico Fernandez, Steve Abel, Pete Parker, Richard Stoll, and many others.
Combs”s fine prose makes reading highly technical information easy and enjoyable. When you finish one of his books, you know he did his research. He has been where giant fish tear tackle apart and wear anglers out. Every one of his books is an adventure lived vicariously by the reader through the magic of Combs”s pen.
No big-game angler should be without Bluewater Fly Fishing in their library.
