This book can fit in your lure bag and brought to the beach if need be, to follow step-by-step photographs of Ron in action. Ron Arra fully explains all his Surf -casting techniques including a special chapter on two- handed, Spey-style fly rods that have found their way across the Atlantic and made it possible for American anglers to throw a fly farther out over the waves than ever before, achieving much greater distance than with traditional, one handed fly rods. Most Surfcasters, after reading this book, along with practice, have achieved at least 100' to there cast.   Foreward by former New York Times columnist Nelson Bryant.  The 6"x9" book contains 152 pages including photos.
