Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To be a steelhead fly fisherman, says Steve Raymond at the start of this memorable book, "is to spend hundreds of long days under leaden skies oozing endless rain, to feel the sudden crackle of energy that comes on those wonderful rare mornings when the sun rises in a cloudless sky and reveals the country in all its freshly washed splendor, to stand for countless cold hours in icy gray rivers while the hope for a steelhead burns lower and lower...and then to experience the explosive, helpless, breath-robbing excitement that comes in the split second when a steelhead finally does take with a strike that shakes your arms all the way to their sockets, to see the unforgettable sight of the fish's first cartwheeling leap, its sides flashing with a brighter light than day."Steelhead Country brilliantly captures the great joys and challenges of fly fishing for steelhead trout. It is a warmly personal account of the author's long pursuit of these great sea-run rainbow trout and what he has learned about fishing for them in the rivers and estuaries of the Pacific Northwest. (61/4 X 91/4, 228 pages, illustrations)
