Steelhead Fly Fishing

Trey Combs, Author, Loren Smith, Illustrator Lyons and Burford Publishers $45 (512p) ISBN 978-1-55821-119-3
America's Northwestern rivers have given modern angling the steelhead, a migratory trout big enough to command its own rules, and Combs's book is a tribute sufficient to the fish. The flash of hard-won angling experience illuminates every page as knowing writing combines with glorious photography from 15 river systems of the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. Combs's authority is augmented by that of 16 local contributors to form a tributary system of steelheading techniques and fly patterns. The large format--a practicality for flytiers overlooked in many volumes--and elegant page design showcase both text and color plates. The core of this regional angling book is the distilled, strange charm of fly-fishing in a uniquely North American style. (Jan.)
