Product Description


The first and only book to reveal when,
where, and how to catch the amazing false albacore.

The false albacore is a strong and lightning-fast member of the tuna family
that has been discovered by the saltwater flyfishing world as one of the most
challenging species to target. These fish are so fast and so strong for their
weight that they are known to break fishermen's hearts along with their
expensive fly rods. False Albacore covers the life history, biology,
migratory patterns, and feeding habits of this great fish, as well as the tackle
and techniques that are necessary to catch them.

These fast-moving beauties migrate down the eastern coastline from
Massachusetts to Florida each fall. The recognized mecca for pursuing them is
North Carolina, where the greatest fly fishermen from around the world
congregate to take part in the fall blitz. Tom Gilmore has spent years learning
their tricks, as well as those of the guides that pursue them. He has uncovered
hot spots ranging from Massachusetts to as yet undiscovered waters in Florida.
False Albacore is the first and only book dedicated exclusively to the
pursuit of this exciting species. 30 black & white photographs, 12 color
photographs, 6 maps, index.
