Very informative and a little mind blowing. As a Kayaker in Florida I was a little skeptical about a paddle board back in the mangroves. But after reading this book I can see myself using one of these, specifically the inflatables.
I found this book very entertaining and the flytying instructions are first class. I've tied up a few of these flies already and enjoyed the whole process. Can't wait to get out fishing with these now.
My husband I and love to fly fish from our kayaks, but sight casting is close to impossible from a sitting position. We hadn’t really explored fly fishing from an SUP, and Drew’s ebook is loaded with great tips and tricks. From his research, Drew demonstrates the SUP is clearly a viable option that provides access to super skinny water, excellent visual perspective, and still stable enough to get you where you want to go! Loved the opportunity to learn more about it!
For a inexperienced fly tier this is gold. Easy to understand, easy to follow. Thanks Drew
The coyote tail and body fur that I received were by far the best quality I’ve seen.
Exactly as expected-hard to find square legs for tying crab flies at a decent price and fast shipping.
Having started to tie flies in the 60's, and tied commercially in the late 70's and into the 80's, I was impressed with the thorough treatment of tried and true methods, as well as some new ideas I had not seen before, all explained in an easy to understand way. Well done.
Well written and explained introduction to SUP fishing. Can't wait to try it out!
This eBook has a lot of great tips and useful ideas! Thank you for sharing!
Great quality, the tail is supple and hair doesn’t fall out.
This ebook quickly and easily broke down some of the complications with fly fishing from a paddle board. It’s a fun read and makes you want to get out there and try it.
Quick read from a great source. Breaks down the basics of why to get into SUP fishing, where to get started and what equipment is needed. Nice to see a guide being created for this niche market within fly fishing. Thanks Drew!
Good info. Just wish more info on PFD's and board leashes.
Excellent guide for stepping into the arena with SUP fishing. Drew explains in a simple manner on how to set up your rig. I like to fly fish off my rig so maintaining space and managing line is crucial. Also different configurations are necessary based on what type of water I’m fishing. I’m still trying to dial in my inflatable for class 2 whitewater while chasing stripes and spotted bass.
I learned early from my father a noted scientist -that did not fish - that most hard problems are just a series of easy problems strung together. If you break them down the answers will be come apparent. I feel this way about all of Drew’s books. The patterns are very effective and well described. But the step by step photo by photo break down sets them apart. He makes them all “easy ties” however long and complicated they may actually be. I highly recommend all of his books and greatly enjoy them in both E and hard cover format. Most of all from the Bahamas to Biscayne Bay and Sanibel to the secrest spots of the glades the fish seem to love them as much as my dad enjoyed solving problems.
Thank you so much for your E-book on Feathers. I found it very helpful, especially when tying saltwater patterns.
Good stuff that is tough to come by. Arrived quickly and in great condition. Came with a cool sticker too.
Great flies to tie for redfish
I am planning a trip to the Bahamas and was looking for flies to tie. This book provided a hand full of effective bonefish flies and tying information. On my way to having a full box!!!
Super happy with the Bauer rubber legs I got—working with them on a number of crab patterns!
Great book! I have always been a bit confused by how to select the best natural materials. This is the only book I have seen that does this so thoroughly and understandably AND in 35 pages. Most of my frustration with flies I have tied most usually points to the quality of the materials used. As I have grown older I realized that a good understanding of the quality of the materials is very important if you want good quality flies.
Drew's coyote tails are the best. Beside tying with these for coyote ugly flies, I use them for tying foxy bend back clouser. Add the crusher legs, you have the perfect fly. Thanks Drew
Outstanding information which would take the average person years to understand what Drew shows you in this eBook
