128 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/4, softcover
Angling legend Charles Meck covers tandems top to bottom with his favorite flies for matching hatches, as well as tried-and-true patterns for drumming up fish during summer doldrums and other tough conditions. In the first book devoted entirely to fishing more than one fly at once, Meck discusses seven of the most effective rigs and the best times to use them, including detailed steps showing how to tie his new looped-leader series of flies. Whether casting to the banks from a drift-boat on Montana’s Missouri River or stalking central Pennsylvania spring-creek trout, anglers across the country will learn something from this book to help them catch more trout.
In this book you’ll learn:
• How to match the hatch with the tandem and the different depths at which common insects emerge
• How to tie and fish the author’s new Looped Leader series of flies
• How to rig and fish seven tandem rigs:
Looped Leader • Moveable Dropper • Bend • Two Eye • Tag • Dropper • Dropper Loop
Also included in this book are recipes, tying notes, and fishing information for more than 20 of the author’s most dependable patterns.
Charles Meck is the author of more than twelve fly fishing books, and his writing appears regularly in Mid Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide and Fly Fisherman. He lives in Pennsylvania Furnace, Pennsylvania, and Mesa, Arizona.
