The Fishing Gene Blog has been running for in excess of three years. With 80 posts to date and and average viewership in excess of 1000 a month, a mess of useful, thought provoking and sometimes humorous anecdotes related to the authors abiding passion. Fly-fishing.

This book is a collection of twelve of the most popular posts over the years. Those stories or instructions which have proven to be most read by the public at large and now made available in a more readable and convenient format.

Do you ever wonder why you can't cast your new hi-tec rod as well as the older one that you loved so much? Ever pondered why it can be so tricky to fool a cold blooded creature with a brain the size of a pea? And of course what flies do guides use when hackles are hard to come by and expensive?

This book is filled with humorous and thought provoking anecdotes on all aspects of the sport.

The author's passion has been fishing since exiting the womb, it’s not his fault, he has "The Fishing Gene" in his DNA and here he unselfishly shares some of the experience and experiences of a lifetime of fishing.
