Flies tied by ALAN CAOLO
I am fascinated with all fishing – fresh water, salt water, inshore, offshore . . . but I’m most passionate about saltwater fly fishing – especially stalking the flats and shallows for all the game fish that hunt in these waters. What’s my favorite? Hunting permit and trophy bonefish in brilliant sunlight on desolate, windswept grass flats is about as good as it gets for this cowboy! I discovered saltwater angling at a very young age and have never looked back.
I began outdoor writing and photography about 20 years ago and have strived to contribute, in some small way, to the ancient sport of fly fishing. To date, I’ve authored two books on saltwater fly fishing and I’m presently working on two new titles. I have also contributed a host of topically-diverse short- and full-feature articles and freelance photography to several leading outdoor publications, including Fly Fisherman, American Angler, Sport Fishing, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, On The Water, and more. I also provide saltwater fly fishing instruction, seminars, and demonstrations.
