Neil Grose, Fishing Monthly

“Philip is able to effortlessly capture the spirit and life of his extensive flyfishing experience – he educates us in the more ephemeral aspects of this past time rather than telling us what to tie on and where. Weigall proves that the journey is always far more valuable than the destination. You will no doubt learn much about fishing from these pages, but you will also learn to question and reflect upon your own fishing.  I certainly believe that is where the real strength of Weigall’s writing lies – it isn’t a brag-fest of what he has done or what he has caught, it is a deliberate contemplation of his experiences reflected in a manner which encourages our own reflection…..I highly recommend to every reader.”

Tim Hunter, Sunday Star Times
“It’s an effortless read and will reward fly fishers of all stripes.”

Newcastle Herald, March 2012
“If you’re a fly-fisher, Weigall puts you back on the water. If you’re not, maybe he’ll inspire you.”

Julian Watson, Illawarra Flyfishers
“Ahhh. It’s always nice to sit down and crack open a new fly book by a well known Australian flyfishing writer and Philip Weigall’s Fishing Sense is no exception. A lovely mix of anecdote and teachings, this book feels as if Phil has taken an opportunity to write not just on tips and techniques but to let us in on some of his favourite fishing places and trips, events that stand out for more than just fish. Of course there are more than enough tales of fish, large fish and lost fish, all told in a way that makes you feel you might be with Phil sharing a counter meal in a country pub or nestling a mug of your favourite around the campfire above a summer stream.”

Fishing Sense

Philip Weigall is considered to be probably the best writer on flyfishing in Australia and has a large following. Flyfishing, and fishing in general, is one of Australia’s – and the world’s – most popular outdoor activities. It’s a sad fact of flyfishing that there is no prescriptive manual for ensuring success.

It is an activity that defies simple evaluation, with enough variables to leave even the ‘experts’ scratching their heads from time to time. For example, why is it that a trout will respond to a certain fly one day, but ignore it entirely in identical conditions on another day? Acclaimed flyfishing author Philip Weigall attempts to answer this question and many more in this engaging book.

In his words, it is a book of ‘flyfishing truths’, a collection of techniques, ideas, concepts, knowledge and equipment that, to the best of his objective observations over many decades spent with a rod in hand, honestly seem to matter when it comes to catching trout.
