In Behind the Counter, Neil Jennings offers tips, tricks, shortcuts and techniques. Whatever one's experience level, there are things in this book that readers will find useful or thought provoking.
Jennings started getting serious about fly-fishing in 1973 and has fished that way exclusively ever since. From 1982 through 2003 he was a partner/owner in a retail fly-fishing shop in Calgary , Alberta . During that time Neil was behind the counter, answering questions and giving advice to thousands of flyfishers, from wannabes to seriously talented anglers.
Over the years, Neil learned a lot about fly-fishing, some of it by good example and some of it by bad. This book is a distillation of the best of that experience.
One of the wonderful things about fly-fishing is that you have an opportunity to learn new things all the time.
About the author
Neil Jennings is an ardent hiker, photographer, and outdoorsman who loves “getting down in the dirt” pursuing his keen interest in wildflowers. For 22 years he was a co-owner of a fly-fishing retail store in Calgary, and he has fly-fished extensively, in both fresh and saltwater, for decades. His angling pursuits usually lead him to wildflower investigations in a variety of venues. He taught fly-fishing-related courses in Calgary for over 20 years, and his photographs and writings on the subject have appeared in a number of outdoor magazines. Neil has previously written several volumes published by Rocky Mountain Books dealing with wildflowers in western Canada, fly fishing, and hiking venues in southern Alberta. Neil lives in Calgary, Alberta, with Linda, his wife of over 40 years. They spend a lot of time outdoors together chasing fish, flowers, and, as often as possible, grandchildren.
