When George Douglas sent me a copy of his latest book, Fish Like A Guide, I didn’t know what to expect. I had seen George speak a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed his presentation, but outside of Kype Magazine, I wasn’t familar with his approach to fly fishing or guiding. I’m happy to say that I found the the book to be insightful, educational and enjoyable.
The back cover says that the book “reveals the strategy and advance thought process that provides anglers with a road map to success.” I would agree with this statement, but would add that George provides just as much common sense to his approach to both fly fishing and guiding.
George addresses everything from trip preparation to gauging the impact of weather and water conditions. He also shares the personal rules that have led to his fly fishing success.
For those looking for a practical guide to fly fishing this is a great resource and an easy read.
I enjoyed the book so much that I’m giving away a signed copy to one lucky winner as part of FinFollower’s November email sign up campaign. Everyone joining our email list between October 23, 2010 and December 1, 2010 has a chance to win this great book. Contest rules appear below.
If you don’t want to wait, and want to purchase Fish Like A Guide now, go to this link.
I look forward to seeing more from George and giving away a copy of Fish Like A Guide soon. Conrest rules appear below. Enjoy!
