Proclaimed as the easiest and most exciting way to fly-fish, dapping with a blowline is a traditional fly-fishing practice and is extremely popular in Ireland and Scotland. Today's fly fishers can learn more about fish and how to catch them from this unusual technique that works well when the wind is too strong. Robert Boyle gives details on how to touch the fly up and down on the surface of the water and use a blowline to carry the fly to the fish without a visible leader or line. Boyle provides a lively account of the history of dapping and shares entertaining reminiscences of how he learned its intricacies, beginning with a lesson from a French maitre d' in the Catskills.Biografía del autor:
