tippets, are highlighted in detail. Much of the information contained in

The following review was
written by Frank Amato Books: "This book will have you spending more
time on the water fishing and much less time tying knots and rigging
leaders. Chermanski shares the secrets of his angling success in a
unique, quick-change interlocking loop system that features only six
essential knots. This system of loops, knots and riggings permits
fly lines, leaders, tippets, shock traces, and pre-rigged flies to
be interchanged in the field without the need to tie a knot; and the
system can be applied for all fish species from trout and panfish to
bonefish and sailfish. Over the past 40 years, Chermanski has used
this system to successfully catch more than 450 species of fish in
North American waters and more than 50 fly fishing world records.
Regardless of what species you fish for, and whether you fish in
fresh water or salt, your fishing will greatly benefit from Dave's
vast knowledge and experience."
