It took five years to write and present this work and now I offer it free so you can share all the tips and tricks I learned - tips and tricks which put fish in my bag and trophies on my shelf. This is NOT a game or a toy! But if you are serious about your fly fishing this is the app for you! Download it - explore it - share it with your friends. I guarantee you will find information in here which will leave you saying "I never thought of that"!
Most people get out fly fishing once or twice a month if they are lucky and never have the time to discover the techniques I perfected over the years. This app will give you the edge and save you hours of frustration. After all, fly fishing’s meant to be fun... remember? I spent a lot of time and effort trying out different ideas so now you don't need to. I'll tell you how to recognize the best method for a particular time, season and weather conditions.
There are galleries of flies - so you can see what it looks like when someone mentions a fly you haven't heard of before. There's a section to introduce you to fly tying and dressing - and I'll show you the only three flies you're ever likely to need. I developed them from other patterns and can honestly say that I caught many, many fish using them. I couldn't buy these flies in the shops at the time so I developed some easy ways to tie them for myself and I'll show you how to do that quickly and easily. I even got into the habit of tying up a few flies over a cup of coffee just before I went fishing. That's how easy they are!
There are maps for major fly fishing countries containing a wealth of information about their fly fishing locations, including a picture of each site and important details such as names, addresses, telephone numbers and relevant websites. The information on these maps is constantly being updated to give you a great reference source for your next fly fishing adventure!
There's even a section of recipes to help you work out what to do with your fish when you've caught it - everything from a quick snack to a formal dinner!
And if you do find this App helpful please leave a comment to help others make up their minds! Tight Lines!
Update May, 2014: There is a known problem with Nexus devices which stop the videos playing. I am unable to adjust the app to accommodate a problem caused by Nexus. I have received several "one stars" from Nexus users. This is disappointing as it is a Nexus problem and not an app problem. If you have a Nexus and cannot watch the videos please take this matter up with Nexus rather than down-rating my app!

Fly casting requires the ability to move the fly rod in a straight path to gain both accuracy and distance.
This app utilizes the phone's built-in accelerometer to provide audial and visual feedback in real time to indicate deviation from the straight path of the hand motion during a simulated casting movement. The simulated casting movement is performed by moving the hand, as if doing forward and backward casts, while holding the phone with it´s back side in the palm of the hand.
Although the Fly Casting Tracking Simulator is developed for fly fishers, this tool is also useful to improve performance during any activity demanding high hand movement accuracy while following a straight path.
