In Fly Fishing the Pacific Inshore, Hanley introduces a concept he calls the "trident curriculum." This incorporates an understanding of habitat, game-fish behavior, and an overview of the equipment used in pursuit of the popular Pacific inshore species. The book is divided into five sections designed to complement his curriculum. Section one covers habitats, including tides, estuaries, bays and beaches. Section two overviews 16 commonly sought-after game fish, and sections three through five offer information on tackle, tactics, watercraft and fly patterns. A thoughtful bibliography, Glossy photos, and a comprehensive index further enhance this book.
