More Information
Fully Revised by Jim DuFresne

This completely revised & updated edition of the indispensable original offers more information on why Michigan is such a great place for all fly fishers. Twelve Classic Trout Streams also features new materialfor example, information on hatches, including a hatch schedule chart; a list of ten flies that every Michigan angler should have; & equipment (line weight, rod length, etc.) for Michigan streams.

At the heart of the book is the increased number of public access sites complete with GPS coordinatesa first among guides to Michigan streams. There are also all new photographs & improved maps that include stream bottom identification.

Twelve Classic Trout Streams answers basic questions for any trip to a trout stream to be successful. Where are the best access sites? How wide & deep is the river there? Will you stand on firm sand or gravel, slip on hard clay or muddy stones, or sink into soft sand or mud? Is the current slow enough that you can wade easily upstream or so fast that you will be swept off your feet? All of these things are described or shown on the maps.
