Reviews:

"This Guide may be the single most valuable item a novice angler can buy . . . and most of us would do well to re-read the sections on flies, fly selection, and stream tactics every spring before pulling on our waders for the first time." --Rod & Reel


Tom is Fly Rod & Reel magazine's 2011 Angler of the Year! To quote the magazine: "People who meet him know this: Rosenbauer is as valid a fly fisherman as they come - honest, approachable, generous, dedicated, and enthusiastic. It's that kind of enthusiasm and the written and verbal legacy he is providing that make Tom Rosenbauer Fly Rod & Reel's 2011 Angler of the Year."
