More Information
Amateur or expert, every angler dreams of landing "the big one," but that's only part of the appeal of fly fishing. Because even when hours pass without a bite, nothing beats the rugged beauty of the surroundings. For both armchair travelers and avid outdoorsmen who may have already stated a checklist of their own. Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die maps out the meccas of the fly-fishing world.

Through in-depth interviews with the sport's acknowledged gurus, author Chris Santella goes beyond standard guides to convey the very essence of the recommended locations. Readers can vicariously cast mouse patterns to 50-pound taimen in the wilds of mongolia, wrangle with wily permit off the Florida Keys, and match the hatch on Montana's Armstrong's Spring Creek, Jardines de la Reina, Cuba (tarpon), the Zhupanova River, Kamchatka (rainbow trout), and the Rio Negro, Brazil (peacock bass) are also included.

The essays include a cultural & natural history of each site, along with colorful anecdotes based on the author's & authorities' experiences. With breathtakingly beautiful photos of the spots, many by celebrated fly-fishing photographer R. Valentine Atkinson, the book also provides adventurous anglers with enough travel-and-tackle information so that they, too, can start planning excursions to go fish around the globe.

* Fly fishing's top spots revealed by the sport's authories including Paul Guernsey, editor-in-chief of Fly Rod & Reel magazine; Mike Fitzgerald, president of the fly-fishing travel agency Frontiers; and Craig Mathews, respected conservationist and owner of Blue Ribbon Flies in Montana.
