Curtis Creek Manifesto

Sheridan Anderson, self-described "foe of the work ethic," has put together a beginner fly-fishing book that is an illustrated guide to "the art of fly fishing on moving water" that one must see to fully appreciate. There is much wisdom in this introduction to a difficult sport, all presented in a large cartoon format. Like William Nealy's Kayak, Anderson takes advantage of his multimedia approach to explain aspects of fly fishing, through both words and drawings, that might otherwise be lost on the neophyte. All this is conveyed with a good sense of humor, something beginning fly fishers need in abundance. Beginner fly-fishing book in soft cover. 48 pages.

An Excellent, Concise Book on Fly Fishing,
June 14, 2013
By: swimcoach

"I have bought this book twice. It's that good! I bought the first one over 30 years ago when I was in college. Unfortunately, it got destroyed.
Two years ago, I got back into fly fishing after a 20 year break, and I bought it again. It has great illustrations and common sense tips. It is a very easy read, and one that I recommend to all ages.

THE Best Instruction Book,
March 14, 2012
By: NNCC
from San Jose, CA
"There are a lot of instructional fly fishing books out there, but this is the best one, bar none. Great illustrations, logical and easy to follow instructions. Both beginners and advanced anglers can benefit from this book. If my cast starts to go south or I need to get back to basics on reading the water or fly presentations, I go back to this book."

"This was recommended to me many years ago when I started to learn fly fishing after moving out west. I'm a visual learner so the method in which the content is delivered made learning the knots and mechanics of fly fishing that much easier.
If you want a quick easy instructional guide to the basics then Curtis Creek Manifesto is your best bet.
Enjoy!
