Backcountry Flies

Tying and Fishing Florida Patterns, from Swamp to Surf

Book Description

Florida’s coastal fishing has suffered over the years, and more and more anglers are turning toward the inland waters to fish for trophy largemouth bass, peacock bass, snook, baby tarpon, cichlids, and a host of other exotic species. This book is dedicated to fly patterns for these fish and includes step-by-step instructions as well as fishing information.
