This book is the perfect combination of art and practicality. Gorgeous Gyotaku prints highlight the artistry in the fly photography, making the book as beautiful as it is informative.
The year-round fly-fishing opportunities in the flats, inshore, and off-shore waters of the Southeast and Gulf Coast are world-class. As are the numerous game fish you will encounter: bonefish, tarpon, permit, pompano, sailfish and sharks, to name just a few. That’s a lot of water types and a lot of fish species, so where do you start? After years of research, Peluso has compiled the go-to flies from guides, captains, fly shop owners, local club members, avid anglers . . . in short, the experts in Southeast and Gulf Coast waters. The flies in this book are proven fish-catchers from the people whose jobs depend on your successful Southeast fishing adventure! Hundreds of patterns are shared, as well as techniques and tips for using them, that will give you the upper hand on these wily and wary opponents.

"Books on fly tying are something of an anachronism in the digital age. What this new book, from writer Angelo Peluso, offers is a comprehensive, one-stop source of inspiration and serendipitous discovery. In other words, you can’t search for what you don’t know exists. Flip through the pages and you’ll be reminded of old favorite patterns, as well as new developments and utilitarian updates to standards. es, I don’t have a formal count, but with three patterns per page, and at least 140 pages devoted to the subject, there are over 400 flies in here. Looking to tie a new saltwater fly every day of the year? __Jeff Weakley, The Florida Sportsman, May 14, 2012
