From Exisle Publishing:
It’s a fact of flyfishing that there is no prescriptive manual for ensuring success. It is an activity that defies simple evaluation, with enough variables to leave even the ‘experts’ scratching their heads from time to time. For example, why is it that a trout will respond to a certain fly one day, but ignore it entirely in identical conditions on another day?
Respected flyfishing author Philip Weigall attempts to answer this question and many more in his engaging second book with Exisle, Fishing Sense.
Fishing Sense is a beautifully presented book of ‘flyfishing truths’; a collection of techniques, ideas, concepts, knowledge and equipment that, to the best of Philip’s objective observations over many decades spent with a rod in hand, honestly seem to matter when it comes to catching trout.
“After decades of flyfishing, I find that much of what I learn and discover only leads to more questions, in large part because, as hard as I try, I cannot actually get inside the head of a fish, or in this specific case, a trout. So rather than making any claim to have ‘nailed’ flyfishing for trout in a single book, this one is simply about those things that have become, if you like, my flyfishing ‘truths’.”
Fishing Sense is a gorgeous production and would make an excellent gift this Father’s Day.

“Sometimes, after reading one of Philip Weigall’s books I wonder why I feel that I’ve just returned from a fishing trip…and a good one at that!…I highly recommend Fishing Sense whether you are a flyfisher or not.”
