When you think of fly fishing, you think of cold Adirondack Mountain streams, big trout caught on carefully maneuvered flies.Rob Streeter, in his new book "Warmwater Fly-Fishing," has taken the path less traveled, so to speak, using flies to catch bass, pike, muskellunge, and even carp. This 150-page book details how to catch these very common sport fish.Streeter starts with tackle, so much debated with trout and salmon fly fishers, but not often understood by the warmwater anglers. He spends an entire chapter on equipment needed and writes, "Most warmwater fly-fishing will not involve casting over great distances, yet often requires quick, precision casts to tight areas." Streeter adds, "The most practical action is a medium to medium-fast action for most fishing applications."From here, Streeter moves on to specific rods for specific species before detailing fishing strategies for panfish, bass, pike, pickerel, muskellunge and carp. A final chapter is devoted entirely to "Flies for Warmwater Fly-fishing."Rob Streeter is the Outdoor Correspondent for the Albany Times Union and author of "New York Fly-Fishing Guide." His new book "Warmwater Fly-Fishing" retails for $19.95 and is self-published and available at www.robstreeter.com.
