Show synopsis In this exciting book, Cecilia Pudge Kleinkauf uses the real-life experiences of four young women--Alyssa, Samantha, Alex, and Blair--to create an informative and engaging introduction to the sport of flyfishing for pre-teen and teenage girls. Every beginning flyfisher needs a teacher, and there's no better one for young women than Pudge Kleinkauf. She covers everything they'll need to know, from basic skills such as casting, wading, and knot tying, to using flyrods and reels and choosing flies. In addition to the basic skills, the book features information on manufacturers that make gear specifically for young people, a discussion of catch-and-release ethics, and stories from adult women anglers who began flyfishing as girls. It tells how to find nearby resources where girls can learn the sport and discover local waters where they might fish. Pudge understands the needs of young women and treats them with respect. She is the teacher anyone would want for his or her own child.
