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!

“How to fish” and tie flies? Fly tying is the process of producing an artificial fly to be used by anglers to catch fish via means of “fly fishing”.
Fly tying requires some basic equipment, the appropriate materials for the fly pattern being tied and a pattern to follow or replicate. Tying equipment enables the fly tier to efficiently and effectively assemble and secure the materials on the hook. Flying materials were originally limited to various furs, feathers, threads and hooks. Today there many different types of natural and synthetic materials used to tie flies. Fly patterns represent the ‘recipe’ required to create the fly—what hook size(s) types to use, what materials are to be used, what colors, in what sequence and by what methods are they assembled on the hook.
