The Story

This Tactical Fly Fishing book by Devin Olsen contains a wealth of knowledge by a professional angler and former fisheries biologist who describes the tactics and techniques he's learned since he started competing for Fly Fishing Team USA in 2006. Success is in the details, and this book offers a significant insight into the details that garner that success. From the moment Olsen sees the water for the first time, he goes through the decisions on gear and rigging based on those observations, to strategic techniques, including a significant chapter on European nymphing techniques, and where the most likely lies are for fish based on water energy and current. This is a scientific approach with individual examples and case studies on riffles, pools, banks, and other river features. Includes photos and recipes for some of Olsen's favorite patterns.
